Now On: Bush Medicine Exhibition

Bush Medicine presents a collection of illustrative works imparting tribal wisdom on a selection of bush medicines, and demonstrates how they are still an important practice today. 

There are many different types of bush medicines found in Utopia. Some plants, like ilpengk, are crushed, mixed with fat and applied to the skin. Others are boiled and inhaled, slowly chewed, or occasionally drunk. Some saps are directly smeared on the skin, and there are barks that are smoked. Healing rituals are also an important part of bush medicine, especially when the ailment is considered to be caused by the supernatural.

WHEN: Friday 24th May - Sunday 4th August 2019
FEATURED ARTISTS: Dorrie Jones, Patsy Long, Katie Kemarre, Abie Loy Kemarre, Gloria Petyarre, Doreen Kunoth, Topsy Jones and Angelina Ngale.
