Miwatj Yolŋu Exhibition Catalogue

Bundanon has produced a stunning new publication that documents the landmark exhibition season Miwatj Yolŋu – Sunrise People (presented at Bundanon October 2023 – February 2024). 

Miwatj Yolŋu  explores storytelling, ecology and materiality in the works of 13 artists from the Yirrkala Community in East Arnhem Land. Miwatj Yolŋu translates to ‘sunrise people’ in Yolŋu Matha (Yolŋu tongue).

“The Miwatj Yolŋu exhibition at Bundanon is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view this collection of masterworks” – Claire G Coleman
