Jun 9, 2015 - The History of Experimental Printmaking at Yirrkala with Denise Salvestro, PhD Candidate at ANU, Saturday 6 June 2015.


In association with the exhibition Mother to Daughter: On Art and Caring for Homelands at The Cross Art Projects, Kings Cross, Sydney, 30 April to 6 June 2015. Presented by The Cross Art Projects and Buku-Larrngay Mulka Art Centre, Yirrkala, NT -

About the Exhibition: Mother to Daughter: On Art and Caring for Homelands celebrates leading women painters and their daughters at the renowned Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre at Yirrkala, a small Aboriginal community on the northeastern tip of the Top End.

The intergenerational artist pairs are Mulkun Wirrpanda & Yalmakany Marawili; Nongirrna Marawili & her two daughters Marrnyula Munungurr and Rerrkirrwana Munungurr; Malaluba Gumana & Djurayun Murrinyina; Banduk Marika & Ruby Djikarra Alderton; the late Gulumbu Yunupingu & Dhambit Munungurr; Galuma Maymuru & Liyawaday Wirrpanda; Naminapu Maymuru-White & Narrawu Wanambi.

The project is part of Future Feminist Archive, an expansive project for the 40th Anniversary of International Women’s Year that reviews some changes over the past four decades. In the late 1970s and 1980s across the Aboriginal art world radical changes made obsolete the divisive categories of urban versus traditional, or innovative versus static. One decisive moment was when some senior lawmen taught their daughters to paint sacred imagery onto bark at Yirrkala, an innovation that produced some of the most renowned Australian painters of the late-twentieth century; the other was the homelands movement enabled by the Land Rights Act (Northern Territory) in 1976.

Feb 20, 2015 - Occasional Seminar - Mr Jacky Green and Dr Seán Kerins

Developing the North: who benefits and who bears cost? A Case Study from the Gulf Country.


In this seminar Jacky Green and Dr Seán Kerins used Jacky’s artwork to situate the conflict between settler colonisers and Indigenous peoples over access to, and control of, natural resources within the wider historical setting. The seminar aimed to demonstrate how the costs and benefits associated with environmental change in the Gulf country are distributed unequally.


The McArthur River Mine, situated 60 km south-west of Borroloola in the Northern Territory, is one of the world’s largest lead, zinc and silver mines. In October 2014, the ERIAS Group released the report Independent Environmental Monitor for McArthur River Mine. The report was damning, outlining how both Glencore Xstrata (the current owners of the mine) and the Northern Territory Department of Mines and Energy were failing in their environmental management of the McArthur River Mine.
