Date & Time
Top End Bugi is a collaborative exhibition featuring bark art from three art centres in Australia’s Top End, Buku-Larrngay Mulka Centre, Maningrida Arts and Culture, and Ngukurr Arts.
Presenting a series of works on Stringybark and selection of Larrakitj, Top End Bugi celebrates the creativity and diversity of bark artists, emerging and established.
The evolution of bark painting as a contemporary artform is grounded in keeping culture strong. Capturing the bond between Aboriginal cultures and land, bark art has played a significant role in the progression of land rights and human rights for Indigenous peoples.
