Exhibition Opening – ‘Dalkari’ (ancestral footprints) by Bula’bula Artists
'Dalkari' is an exhibition by artists from Bula'bula Arts, situated in Gurrwiliny (Arafura wetlands), Arnhem Land. Exhibited artworks depict cultural lore learned through dance and song.
These stories are reinterpreted into paintings and objects that have traditional ritual and ceremonial significance. This exhibition brings together established artists with emerging artists; for some it is their first time exhibiting work. The exhibition is generously supported by Australia Council.
Proudly Yolngu; Bula’bula Arts supports 150 artists from Ramingining and its surrounding outstations, from fibre art to paintings depicting traditional stories. Their core mission is to foster Yolngu culture. Bula’bula artists remain strong in their culture producing works of deep ritual and spiritual significance and are authentic in their connection to Yolngu (people) and their true nature and beliefs.
