Event: Until 12 October 2013: Darwin, NT
Art exhibition by Todd Williams & Therese Ritchie
Northern Centre for Contemporary Art
"Darwin gets groggy with it -- exhibition examines NT booze double-standard"
""My name is Chips Mackinolty and I am an alcoholic …
"Everyone assumes that grog is an exclusively Aboriginal problem.
That is simply not true. Around 50% of Aboriginal people don’t drink at all.
"If the Northern Territory were a nation, we would have the
third highest per capita consumption in the world,
and that is not down to Aboriginal Territorians,
but to non-Aboriginal people living here."
With these words, Mackinolty opened Groggy,
an exhibition of works by local artists Todd Williams and
Therese Ritchie, on September 13 at the
Northern Centre for Contemporary Art." By Emma Murphy

Manuwangku - Under the Nuclear Cloud
Photographs by Jagath Dheerasekara
Opening: Tue 27 August 2013
Venue: Nyinkka Nyunyu Art and Cultural Centre
"Manuwangku, Under the Nuclear Cloud is a
series of photographs by Jagath Dheerasekara
presenting the community and country around Muckaty,
120 kilometres north of Tennant Creek in the NT."
"For over five years this area has been the focus
of federal government pressure as a site to
dump radioactive waste. The federal plan is
deeply unpopular and is being actively opposed."

received the Amnesty International Human Rights
Innovation Grant 2010 and has developed the
exhibition as a collaborative project with the
Beyond Nuclear Initiative and Muckaty Traditional Owners."
