Five talented Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists have shared their work in Canberra as part of NAIDOC Week and the Mullingarri Meddhung events linked to the Encounters exhibition. Mullingarri Meddhung means ‘alive and as one’ in Ngunnawal language.
Sid Bruce Shortjoe from Cape York was artist in residence in July 2016. Lola and Rex Greeno from Tasmania, Paul Bong, a Yidinji man from Cairns and Kylie Caldwell, a Bundjalung weaver from Richmond River in northern New South Wales undertook their residencies in 2015 and 2016.
