ABC News published an article on Professor Joakim Goldhahn and team’s ARC research project ‘Art at a Crossroad’.The ‘Art at a Crossroad’ project is sponsored by the Australian Research Council and Rock Art Australia.

The community-led project uses historical records, oral history, and analyses of rock art from the early 20th century to identify the artists that created the renowned bark paintings in the Spencer/Cahill Collection that were collected at Oenpelli between 1912-1922, and are now housed in the Melbourne Museum.

The ABC article provides a glimpse of the outcomes of the project’s recent visit to the Melbourne Museum, where artists from Injalak Arts shared their profound knowledge about the bark painting media, the subject matter of the artworks, family histories, and more, to contextualize these artworks and reconnect them to the Gunbalanya community.
