Please join the Whitlam Institute for the opening event of Balnhdhurr – A Lasting Impression, presented by Artback NT in association with Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre.
In a remote corner of Arnhem Land sits Yirrkala Print Space, where, for over twenty years, the ancient craft of printmaking has not only survived, but prospered. This is a celebratory exhibition of a remarkable space, and a remarkable printmaking output.
Artists from the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre will conduct workshops at the Whitlam Institute in September. Open to the public, these workshops will provide a unique opportunity to learn about and participate in the ancient craft of printmaking. There will also be an opportunity to experience cultural exchange and learn more about the exhibition through gallery floor talks.
Friday 16 August 2019, 6:00 - 8:00 pm.
Refreshments will be served.
This is a free event but registration is essential.
VENUE: The Female Orphan School, The Whitlam Institute within Western Sydney University, Parramatta South Campus, corner Victoria Road and James Ruse Drive, Rydalmere
