'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.
Where? Kluge-Ruhe - 400 Worrell Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22911 USA

Who? Featuring works from a number of West Daly artists, including Regina Pilawuk Wilson.
