Murray Art Museum Albury is thrilled to present the work of one of Australia's greatest living artists, John Mawurndjul.

John Mawurndjul AM (born 1952, Kubukkan, western Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia) is celebrated for his mastery of rarrk (fine painted cross-hatching), a tradition shared by generations of Kuninjku artists. This exhibition of bark paintings and sculptures tells the stories of Kuninjku culture and the significant locations surrounding the artist’s home in western Arnhem Land.

I am the old and the new includes over 50 works, spanning forty years of John Mawurndjul's practice.

With interactive activities for children, and supporting education material, this exhibition will delight visitors of all ages. Free entry.
