A major showcase of art from eastern Arnhem Land, exploring 100 years of Yolŋu knowledge sharing.

Gululu dhuwala djalkiri: welcome to the Yolŋu foundations is the first temporary exhibition in the Chau Chak Wing Museum's large Ian Potter Gallery. For Yolŋu people, paintings and sculptures embody their spiritual, philosophical and legal foundations.

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 contemporary artworks, and paintings, sculptures and fibre art from throughout the last century.
