Performance and the Burrinja Collection

Showcasing selected items from the Burrinja / Neil McLeod Gift Collection, this exhibition presents unique Malangan artefacts from New Ireland and New Britain in Papua New Guinea. These stunning objects were produced by master carvers Hosea Linge, Ben Sisia and Edward Sali and give an insight into local ceremonies and performances. On display are also rare Iniet stone carvings from the secret Tolai society on the Gazelle Peninsula and Aboriginal dance boards and paintings from the Kimberley by Jack Dale Mengenen and Rover Thomas Joolama.
