Midawarr - Harvest: The Art of Mulkun Wirrpanda and John Wolseley

When: 24 November 2017 to 18 February 2018
Where: National Museum of Australia
Cost: Free. Donations welcome

Two artists, two completely different approaches, but one abiding passion – to depict the natural bounty to be found in northern Australia.

For almost a decade, renowned artists Mulkun Wirrpanda and John Wolseley have met at midawarr, the harvest season, to seek, eat and paint the edible plants of Yolŋu country in north-eastern Arnhem Land. Together they have created an unforgettable suite of works.
