Join visiting Aboriginal curators Regina and Henry Wilson for a tour of our new exhibit Ngunguni: Old Techniques Remain Strong.
In 2017, the Kluge-Ruhe Collection received a request from the small art center of Durrmu Arts in the West Daly Region for images and information about artworks from their community held in its collection.

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.
