mane djang karirra marks the sixtieth anniversary of Maningrida Arts and Culture (MAC), a community-based Aboriginal art centre in north central Arnhem Land. Established as an element of the Maningrida Social Club in 1963 and now one of the nation’s longest-running art centres, MAC supports a vibrant and diverse community representing some fifteen language groups. This exhibition puts the spotlight on a new generation of female artists – affirming the flourishing and dynamic role of these young women as they forge the centre’s identity in the twenty-first century.

Exhibited artists include Anita Bailedja, Eliza Brian, Gloreen Campion, Jaylene Campion, Cheryl Darwin, Dorothy Galaledba, Joy Garlbin, Melba Gunjarrwanga, Rosina Gunjarrwanga, Fiona Jin-majinggal Mason Steele, Philimena Kelly, Eileena Lamanga, Kay Lindjuwanga, Susan Marawarr, Kate Miwulku, Gwenda Baymabiyma, Annie Mulunwanga Wurrkidj, Sonia Namarnyilk, Jill Namunjdja, Pamela Namunjdja, Zipporah Nanguwerr, Irenie Ngalinba, Christelle Nulla, Antonia Pascoe, Eileen Pascoe, Sandra Richards, Apphia Wurrkidj, Deborah Wurrkidj, Semeria Wurrkidj, Anna Wurrkidj, Lena Yarinkura and Deborah Yuldjirri.
