Concentric Unity: Jintaka- juku - NAIDOC Exhibition Opening Night

Friday 5 July saw the opening evening of Concentric Unity: Jintaka- juku - NAIDOC Exhibition at Bayley Arts Gallery.

The significant “Concentric Unity: Jintaka- juku” Art Exhibition is a reconciliation project and artistic collaboration between Alice Napurrurla Nelson, a proud Walpiri elder and Julian Di Stefano which was presented in Melbourne at the beginning of NAIDOC week 2024.

A very moving Acknowledgment of Country was conducted by Uncle Mark Brown, from the Bunurong Land Council who welcomed everyone to the land. The artists, Alice Napurrurla Nelson and Julian Di Stefano were both in attendance for the opening, with Alice having travelled from the community Yuendumu, 300km northwest of Alice Springs with some of her family to be part of the event. Also in attendance was Dr Catherine Wilkins, Inspector of Glen Eira Bayside Local Area Commander for Southern Metro Region of Victoria Police.

The series of paintings aims to send out the message of hope and reconciliation, aligning with the NAIDOC Week theme, 'Keep The Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud.

You can view the full opening evening gallery here.

The exhibition is running until 19 July. 

Opening hours Weekdays 11am - 5pm and Saturday - Sunday 10am - 5pm.
