Wiradjuri Ngurambanggu is the epitome of MAMA: Australian, contemporary, engaging, relevant and exciting.

This stunning exhibition challenges the perception of Aboriginal art, showcasing a diverse body of work from across Wiradjuri Country. It features existing work and new commissions by five of Australia's leading National and International Wiradjuri artists: Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Jonathan Jones, Brook Andrew, Karla Dickens and Nicole Foreshew.

The exhibition will reflect both indigenous and non-indigenous interpretations of place and country;  themes that are repeated in the works of contemporary Wiradjuri artists.

Wiradjuri Ngurambanggu determines that the broader regional community can participate in a level of cultural awareness that is an immersion into Wiradjuri expressions, ways of life and the perspectives of one who is Wiradjuri in a contemporary world. In doing so, a number of projects are embedded in the exhibition.
