RARRK- John Mawurndjul : Voyage dans le temps en Australie septentrionale

RARRK - John Mawurndjul: Time Travel in Northern Australia
From september 21 2005 to january 31 2006
Contemporary art
This first retrospective of John Mawurndjul’s work in a European museum gathers some 70 works, the majority paintings on tree bark that correspond to the various periods of his career, as well as some sculptures and prints. It also presents, in collaboration with the Museum der Kulturen of Basel, 35 paintings on tree bark by painters from an older generation grouped together by Karel Kupka, who was one of the first researchers to try to understand the Aboriginal painters and to regard them as full fledged artists with a figurative heritage, and to draw up an inventory of their work.
