Arnhem Land artists’ Sydney exhibition links ancient stories with political advocacy

In a small pocket of Arnhem Land called Maningrida, Deborah Wurrikidj has been working long days.

But the artist of more than 20 years said the hours go fast, as she pulls the ancient stories of her homeland into a contemporary exhibition set to be showcased at The Cross Arts Project in Sydney from April 20 until May 26.

Deborah, along with her sister Jennifer Wurrkidj and aunt Susan Marawarr, will also travel to the exhibition, which they sent art to last year but were unable to attend.
