Thursday 12 May - Friday 15 July 2016
Balnhdhurr – A Lasting Impression celebrates 20 years of onsite print production at Yirrkala Print Space in the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre in Northeast Arnhem Land. This exhibition showcases the Yolngu respect for clan and country, with many prints relating to the creation stories and Law as passed on by ancestors, highlighting the importance of kinship and family.
Balnhdhurr – A Lasting Impression takes the viewer on a visual journey, creating a platform for meaningful dialogue between Indigenous and non-Indigenous. It is a coming together of cultures and time, where audiences have the chance to learn of the Yolngu’s strong tradition in artwork and how their skills, talent and creativity have translated to printmaking. This exhibition provides printmakers with the opportunity to actively share their stories through art and for the accomplishments of a sustainable, functional and thriving print studio operating in an incredibly isolated landscape to be recognised and applauded.
A display from the CDU Art Collection of the Revolution suite of 20 limited edition prints will complement this exhibition. Revolution commemorates 20 years of print production at Yirrkala Print Space 2015.
