Part two: Performance reports

A colour photograph showing museum staff unrolling a large Indigenous painting on the floor of a museum hall. Three of the staff are closest to the camera, while a fourth is at one end of the rolled section of the painting. The visible section of the painting shows a brightly coloured background upon which have been painted numerous traditional patterns and forms. In the background of the photograph, two people watch the unrolling from the bucket of a high-lift crane. Another person is visible filming the unrolling and two others stand in the background with what appears to be camera equipment. One of them has a tripod with what appears to be a camera mounted on top.
Conservation and Registration staff rolling out Ngurrara Canvas I, a large canvas from the Western Desert, for documentation in the Hall.
