Fresh focus highlights US-Yolngu connection


Australians will be the first to see new works from a major US exhibition charting seven decades of Yolngu bark painting in northeast Arnhem Land that is expected to visit cities including New York, Los Angeles and Washington DC between 2020—22.

The show, entitled Madayin, a Yolngu word that combines concepts from beauty, law and moral virtue, will launch in Adelaide in 2019 with a display of freshly commissioned works from Buku Larrnggay, the famous art centre in Yirrkala on the Gove ­Peninsula.
