Bark Ladies: Eleven Artists from Yirrkala celebrates eleven daring artists – all women who, throughout their lives, have collectively pushed the boundaries of contemporary Australian painting.

This publication by Myles Russell-Cook accompanies the exhibition Bark Ladies: Eleven Artists from Yirrkala, which celebrates the National Gallery of Victoria’s extraordinary collection of work by Yolŋu women artists who have worked at Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre (Buku), in North-East Arnhem Land.

Included in this publication are works by Nancy Gaymala Yunupiŋu, Gulumbu Yunupiŋu, Barrupu Yunupiŋu, Ms N. Yunupiŋu, Eunice Djerrkŋu Yunupiŋu, Noŋgirrŋa Marawili, Dhambit Munuŋgurr, Mulkuṉ Wirrpanda, Naminapu Maymuru-White, Malaluba Gumana and Dhuwarrwarr Marika. By bringing together these eleven artists, this book highlights the extraordinary tonality, scale, diversity and materiality of their work.
