A pop-up art exhibition is underway this week in Canberra, in celebration of artwork from the Wajarri Yamatji and the connection they have with the country in the remote Mid-West region of Western Australia.

The launch of Balagardi Barnagardi: Across to the Other Land was held on the second day of NAIDOC week, which celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The exhibition is presented by the Department of Industry and Science and CSIRO, and is on display at the Nishi Building in New Acton during 7 – 9 July 2015. For further information on exhibition, visit the NAIDOC week website.

CSIRO acknowledges the Wajarri Yamatji as the traditional owners of the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO) site.
