Aboriginal Artist Shares His Culture

Visiting Yolngul artist Wukun Wanabi told stories and played music during an interdisciplinary art exhibition at the Harvey Art Project Gallery in Ketchum, last weekend. The gallery exhibition runs through February. The indigenous Yolngul people of northeast Arnhem Land in Australia have for centuries used song, dance and painting to connect with ancestral beings. Their artwork has been used to lay claim to a remote region of islands and seacoast not far from Indonesia. Wanabi stands between one of his paintings and a photograph of his son, who was painted for initiation during a Yolngul ceremony. Photo by Willy Cook
