Nillumbik prize for Contemporary Art – finalists and exhibition.

Ended — at Barn Gallery

Ikuntji Artists are proud to announce that the collaborative artwork, ‘Kuruyultu’ by Eunice Napanangka Jack and Tobias Titz has been named a finalist in the 2019 Nillumbik Prize for Contemporary Art.

This image is part of a collaboration between Ikuntji Artists and Photographer Tobias Titz. Ikuntji artists were invited to share the image making process by etching depictions of their country in the wet emulsion of the large format Polaroid 665 film negative. The project encourages self representation, allowing the people in the photographs a voice to accompany their photographic representation.
