Rebecca Conway on Djalkiri

Join curator Rebecca Conway for free floor talk and viewing of the exhibition Gululu dhuwala djalkiri: welcome to the Yolŋu foundations. Explore the exhibition and enjoy the opportunity to ask questions of a member of the curatorial team and the editor of the associated publication, Djalkiri: Yolŋu Art, Collaborations and Collections

Showcasing the University of Sydney’s extensive eastern Arnhem Land art collection, Gululu dhuwala djalkiri: welcome to the Yolŋu foundations is the first temporary exhibition in the Chau Chak Wing Museum’s large Ian Potter Gallery. Representing more than 20 Yolŋu clan groups and 100 artists, the exhibition was produced in collaboration with the Yolŋu communities of Milingimbi, Ramingining and Yirrkala. Included are paintings dated to the late 1920s, alongside work from throughout the last century and contemporary pieces.

Sarah Goffman and Katrina Liberiou

Join curator Katrina Liberiou in conversation with artist Sarah Goffman as they discuss her new exhibition Applied Arts

Intricate and playful, Sarah Goffman transforms recycled material, mostly plastic, into artworks that reference larger histories such as the orientalist fascinations of Western collectors. Taking inspiration from the Chau Chak Wing Museum’s collections, Goffman has applied her detailed eye and wit, to turn utilitarian vessels into objet d’art, and paintings into three-dimensional sculpture.
