Christmas Birrimbirr

In Australia’s remote northeast Arnhem Land, Christmas is celebrated as a time to remember the dead, a time to evoke ancestral spirits (birrimbirr) and a time to renew and revitalize relationships amongst the living.

Under the guidance of Yolngu director, Paul Gurrumuruwuy, ‘Christmas Birrimbirr’ has experimented with re-producing Yolngu Christmas rites in galleries and museums around the world.

We look forward to bringing our exhibitions to this space soon.
