On Thursday 29 May 2020 as part of National Reconciliation Week, we're having a conversation with Senior Indigenous Fellow Margo Neale about the impact of the National Museum’s 2014 exhibition, Old Masters: Australia’s Great Bark Artists and its current touring campaign. We'll be sharing a short video showing barks by Tom Djawa, a senior ceremonial leader and artist of the Gupapuynu clan. His son, Dr Joe Neparrija Gumbula will share about the legacy of his father’s works in the video.
