'NGUNGUNI' at Kluge-Ruhe USA

'NGUNGUNI' is an exhibition of paintings on eucalyptus bark from the West Daly region in northern Australia. This is the very first time that these pieces have left the Kluge-Ruhe collection.

In 2017, the Kluge-Ruhe Collection received a request from Durrmu Arts for images and information about artworks from their community held in its collection. After seeing this information, the elders proposed a project to revitalize bark painting in their region. This exhibition is a result of this exchange, and includes earlier artworks from the 1960s alongside contemporary works created this year, all from West Daly.

Event Details:

Where? Kluge-Ruhe - 400 Worrell Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22911 USA
When? May 24 - Sep 19
Who? Featuring works from a number of West Daly artists, including Regina Pilawuk Wilson.

'MARKING THE INFINITE' at the Phillips Collection, Washington DC

'MARKING THE INFINITE' at the Phillips Collection, Washington DC spotlights nine leading Aboriginal Australian women artists: Nonggirrnga Marawili, Wintjiya Napaltjarri, Yukultji Napangati, Angelina Pwerle, Lena Yarinkura, Gulumbu Yunupingu, Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, Carlene West, and Regina Pilawuk Wilson. 

Taken from the Phillips Collection website: In the late 1980s women artists took the reins of the contemporary Aboriginal art movement in Australia. After years of working in the shadows, assisting their fathers and husbands, they burst onto the scene, giving it a new vitality and dynamism. Women artists redrew the boundaries of Aboriginal art, and continue to be among its most daring innovators. Though cultural activity has always been central to the secular and sacred lives of women, art making in recent decades has offered a key means for women to also maintain their social and economic independence.

'NGERRINGKRRETY: ONE VOICE, MANY STORIES - REGINA PILAWUK WILSON' is Regina's first solo show in the USA. This exhibition features Regina's paintings on canvas and paper, as well as fiber works and prints.

This solo exhibition of Regina's work at Second Street Gallery features paintings on canvas and paper, as well as fiber works and prints. The inspiration for Wilson’s works come from the traditional weaving practices of her people. “My painting,’ says Wilson, ‘it’s about the weaving. In case our daughters or grandchildren forget, it’s on the painting. My big sister told me to do the story on painting for our kids, so they can remember what our ancestors used to do a long time ago. The story, it’s there from a hundred thousand years ago.”

Hailing from remote areas across the island continent, the nine artists in this exhibition are revered matriarchs, commanding leadership roles and using art to empower their respective communities. Their works are steeped in ancient cultural traditions, specific to each artist, and yet speak to universal contemporary themes, revealing the continued relevance of Indigenous knowledge in the twenty-first century.

The subjects of the works range from remote celestial bodies and the native bush plum’s tiny flowers to venerable crafts traditions and women’s ceremonies. And yet, each work grapples with the most fundamental questions of existence. Every mark bears testament to natural and cosmological cycles that put one’s being into perspective: whether the ebb and flow of sacred waters and ancestral sands, or the simple passage of a brush against canvas. Theirs are marks upon the infinite, asserting both our shared humanity and differences in experiencing and valuing the same planet.

Marking the Infinite originated at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, Nevada and was organized by William Fox, Director, Center for Art and Environment, and Henry Skerritt, Curator, Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia. The exhibition is drawn from the collection of Debra and Dennis Scholl and at Newcomb Art Museum was coordinated by Anna Mecugni, Curator and Coordinator of Academic Programming, and Monica Ramirez-Montagut, Director.
