Christine Peacock, Rebekah Pitt and John Graham 'Boy and Moth' Animation 2005

Ruby Alderton’s vision began with inspiration from the work Mokuy by Nawurapu Wunungmurra. Ruby began to look through the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka art centre collection to find artworks that seemed to belong together, rather than separate. The selected work presents a cross section of mediums used by artists in the East Arnhem region, including the more recent development by particular artists of painting on board.

Jenny Fraser presents an exhibition of Aboriginal animations from Australia and Canada in a unique cross-tribal exchange of ideas and world views. After travelling the globe, animations from the Big Eye project return to Darwin, where they first debuted in 2008.

The artists showcased in the exhibition adapt ancient storytelling traditions from Aboriginal culture to contemporary digital storytelling techniques,producing original and distinctive explorations of country and culture. Shauna Tilmouth draws curatorial inspiration from the potently vivid acrylic paintings of senior Tangentyere artist Alison Inkamala.

Through the exhibition Shauna brings together over 30 captivating works that express the joy and inspiration Alison feels when she returns to the country of her ancestors. Exhibition on display until 26 August 2012
