The Yirrkala Print Space is one of Australia’s premier print studios, specialising in limited edition works on paper produced on its very own press by their own family members, this allows artists to share their vision and knowledge through their craft.
The exhibition will present a range of silkscreen, etching and lino cut print limited prints by nine highly regarded artists such as Nyapanyapa Yunupingu (winner of the 3D Prize, National Aboriginal and Torres-Strait Islander Art Award 2008) Malaluba Gumana, Mulkan Wirrpanda and Banduk Marika.
Buku-Larrnggay – “the feeling on your face as it is struck by the first rays of the sun (facing East)” – is a small Indigenous community art centre, run and owned by a mix of both male and female Indigenous artists. Located approximately 700km east of Darwin in Northeast Arnhem Land, in Yirrkala. The centre’s primarily Yolngu (Aboriginal) staff of around twenty, services Yirrkala and the approximately twenty-fix homeland centres in a radius of 200km.
Koskela’s Director Sasha Titchkosky comments: “We are really excited to be showing these beautiful works on paper from the amazing artists of Yirrkala. At Koskela, we believe in supporting Aboriginal community art centres and showcasing contemporary indigenous art that is produced ‘in country.’”
The exhibition starts on Saturday, July 30th and runs until Sunday, August 28th 2016. Prints are limited with four of each available and framed in a white box setting, or unframed.
