Strong Men 1: Jilamara Men

24 October - 23 November 2015

An exhibition by the Men of Jilamara, including Timothy Cook, Conrad Tipungwuti, Pedro Wonaeamirri, Brian Farmer illortamini, Linus Warlapinni, Raymond Bush, Nicholas Mario, Pius Tipungwuti, Patrick Freddy Puruntatameri and Matthew Freddy Puruntatameri. The show seeks to celebrate the importance of Men's law and its contribution to cultural practice. The carving is very physical work, and has a long history at Snake bay and it continues to be passed from one generation to the next. The painting traditions such as combing onto the canvas, made so famous by Pedro Wanaeamirri, also continues to be utilised and explored in new and exciting ways.
