'Murrŋiny' Exhibition Catalogue

'Murrŋiny' Exhibition Catalogue

To celebrate and mark the occasion of this extraordinary exhibition, we have collaborated with Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre and NCCA to produce an accompanying catalogue that takes you on a beautiful photographic journey of the formation of this movement.


Featuring artists' stories, biographies and images connecting their work to country.

Stunning artwork photography and close-up detail of the artists' mastery and workmanship in transferring their designs to metal. Landscape photography that connects artists to place and to story.


With gratitude, we have been able to feature a small selection of rare archival photographs by anthropologist Donald Thomson, who lived and worked in north east Arnhem Land during the 1930s and the early years of WWII. These photographs have been reproduced with permission from the Thomson family and Museums Victoria.


The exhibition is a partnership between Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre, Salon Art Projects and the Northern Centre for Contemporary Art.
