Yirrkala Drawings

Curated by Fiona Gavino, Yirrkala Drawings presents an exhibition of 1940s and beyond Yolngu stories told through crayon drawings on brown paper, bark paintings, and sculptures from the Berndt Museum Collection.

A selection of works from Yirrkala Drawings will continue on show until 20 June 2015.


Created by Abdul Abdullah, GOD IS WITH US, is the retelling of a retelling of a story by a great-grandfather's experience fighting in the trenches of World War One. In the video, the artist mouths the words of his father’s story as he remembers the way his grandfather told it. The story touches on the human side of war and the consequences of violent conflict.

Now showing at the 24SEVEN screen at the front of the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery.

The Gallery presents an innovative program of exhibitions, featuring the University's art collection, contemporary art and touring shows.

All exhibitions are supported by an engaging public program that includes artist talks, seminars, tours, symposia and conferences.
