Nonggirrnga Marawili: from my heart and mind

Nonggirrnga Marawili is regarded as one of the most important artists working at Buku-Larrnggay Mulka at Yirrkala in the Northern Territory. Her highly sophisticated bark paintings, Larrakitj, works on paper and prints reflect an engrained, natural understanding of her culture, history and environment.

This major solo exhibition and accompaying publication at the Art Gallery of New South Wales will span the artist’s career with a focus on the last five years.

From Bark to Neon: Indigenous Art from the NGV Collection

From Bark to Neon: Indigenous Art from the NGV Collection celebrates Indigenous art in Australia. It looks at major artists across time and place who have been at the forefront in creating new forms of expression and in maintaining and regenerating customary cultural practices and iconography. Great individual artists, such as, Paddy Compass Namadbara, Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, Rover Thomas, Trevor Nickolls, Lin Onus, Emily Kam Kngwarray, Sally Gabori, Brook Andrew and Destiny Deacon have shaped and transformed the face of Indigenous art in Australia and inspired many artists to follow their example.
