Marking the Infinite: Contemporary Women Artists from Aboriginal Australia

Member Morning

August 19, 2018, 10 am-Noon

Enjoy exclusive members-only access to Marking the Infinite: Contemporary Women Artists from Aboriginal Australia ! The exhibition spotlights nine leading Aboriginal Australian women artists: Nonggirrnga Marawili, Wintjiya Napaltjarri, Yukultji Napangati, Angelina Pwerle, Carlene West, Regina Pilawuk Wilson, Lena Yarinkura, Gulumbu Yunupingu, and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Hailing from remote areas across the island continent, they are revered matriarchs, commanding leadership roles and using art to empower their respective communities. The subjects of their art are broad, yet each work is an attempt to grapple with fundamental questions of existence, asking us to slow down and pay attention to the
natural world.
