'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.
