ngaratya (together, us group, all in it together) brings together six Barkandji/Barkindji artists; Nici Cumpston, Zena Cumpston, David Doyle, Kent Morris, Adrianne Semmens, and Raymond Zada. 

Several trips together on Country provided a rich foundation for the collective to create newly commissioned works that explore and illuminate their Ancestral connection and homelands. The artists spent time travelling together, engaging with cultural landscapes, their Elders, community, and each other, resulting in an immersive installation that comes collectively from their hearts. Featuring soundscape, moving image, screendance, carving, weaving, printmaking, and photography, ngaratya offers a warm invitation into Barkandji/Barkindji Country and belonging.

ngaratya (together, us group, all in it together) is a Bunjil Place Gallery exhibition toured by NETS Victoria. Curated by Nici Cumpston and Zena Cumpston.
