The Balgo exhibition is a collaborative touring project between Artbank and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The exhibition is being featured along side the National Museum of Australia’s Papunya Painting – “Out of the Australian Desert”.
Th exhibition has already received wide ranging media interest, with the opening being attended by the Governor-General of Australia, Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce AC. The Bangarra Dance Company was one of the highlight performance at the grand openning of the show.
While Papunya Painting from the National Museum of Australia is built on a more anthropological and cultural curatorial premise, the approach of the Artbank exhibition is very much contextualised in the framework of contemporary Australian art as a whole.
