Visual Arts Northern Territory

NYAPANYAPA

Free Event

Presented by Salon Art Projects in association with Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre and Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery

Salon Art Projects of Parap in conjunction with Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery of Sydney present a new show to coincide with the first ever retrospective exhibition for an Indigenous woman at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory – the moment eternal: Nyapanyapa Yunupiŋu.

Nyapanyapa Yunupiŋu may be a woman of small stature, but her work is big on style. For over two decades she has worked from the remote community of Yirrkala, creating significant paintings, drawings, sculptures and screen-based works but her art practice is quite independent of any bark-painting tradition within the Arnhem Land region. Nyapanyapa is the daughter of the famous cultural leader Munggurrawuy Yunupiŋu and sister to Galarrwuy and Mandawuy, both Australians of the Year.
