Bark Ladies: Eleven Artists from Yirrkala | Floor Talk

April 13 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free entry
NGV International

For more than three decades the NGV has been acquiring works by women from Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre, Yirrkala, in North-East Arnhem Land. Before the year 2000, women rarely painted on bark or made ḻarrakitj (painted hollow poles). For this mid-week floor talk in Bark Ladies: Eleven Artists from Yirrkala, exhibition curator Myles Russell-Cook speaks to some of these extraordinary paintings by Yolŋu women artists from Buku.
