until 23.07. | #3501ARTatBerlin | Michael Reid Berlin presents from 24. June 2022 the posthumous exhibition “Destiny” with works by the artist Mr. Wanambi.

‘DESTINY’ encompasses the multi-disciplinary work of the revered Yolŋu artist, leader, and innovator MR WANAMBI. From NFTs and etched, reclaimed road signs to painted eucalyptus barks, the exhibition represents contemporary Aboriginal art at its most vital.

In early 2022, the Michael Reid team began working towards a solo exhibition with renowned Yolŋu artist Mr Wanambi, alongside the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre in Yirrkala. In early May, the team was devastated by the news of his sudden passing.

The artist’s family and the team at Yirrkala are fully aware of what this exhibition meant to him. His family have requested that the exhibition continue as planned. It is a great tragedy that this exhibition will take place posthumously.

‘Destiny’ will take place across Michael Reid´s galleries in Berlin and Sydney, as well as marking the grand opening of the new space, Michael Reid Art Bar. Mr Wanambi’s legacy is vast and unfolding.

Mr. Wanambi’s family have authorised the use of his name in written form but request that it not be spoken aloud in the presence of people from Arnhem Land or in the Miwatj region. His spirit has a long journey to go on, to return to his origin point. Calling his name aloud could distract and delay his spirit’s return in a new form. His family have authorised the use of his preferred title ‘Destiny’.

Opening: Friday, 24. June, 5:00 – 7:00 pm

Exhibition dates: Friday, 24. June to Saturday, 23. July 2022
