HUGO MICHELL GALLERY OPEN: MITTJI – THE GROUP


Hugo Michell Gallery invites you to the opening of ‘Mittji – The Group’, an exhibition of 9 Yolŋu artists in collaboration with the Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre and in conjunction with Tarnanthi: Festival of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art on Thursday 26 September 6-8 pm.

Gunybi Ganambarr | Manini Gumana | Malaluba Gumana | Djambawa Marawili AM | Noŋgirrŋa Marawili | Dhuwarrwarr Marika | Baluka Maymuru | Garawan Waṉambi | Nyapanyapa Yunupiŋu

For this stellar exhibition, some of today’s foremost and pioneering Yolŋu artists come together as a group, or miṯtji. The exhibition demonstrates the collective revolutionary energy that inspires and emboldens artists from the same dynamic art centre, even as they work independently of each other. Together the artists push boundaries and conventions at Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre, at Yirrkala in north-east Arnhem Land – yet each in their own boldly creative direction

Please join us in celebrating the launch of this exceptional exhibition!

Exhibition runs until the 26 October 2019.

Hugo Michell Gallery acknowledges the Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the Adelaide region, and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.
