the moment eternal: Nyapanyapa Yunupiŋu
23 May – 25 October 2020
For over two decades Nyapanyapa Yunupiŋu has worked from the remote community of Yirrkala in the Northern Territory, creating significant paintings, drawings, sculptures and screen-based works.
This exhibition charts the evolution of her practice, which challenges the conventions of Yolŋu art making and has established her as an important Australian artist.
The exhibition features a large scale multimedia work that has been specially commissioned for this exhibition, as well as an accompanying catalogue.
Visit the virtual exhibition.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
