This year’s Ruth and Vincent Megaw Annual lecture in Archaeology and Art welcomes Matt Poll to Flinders University to discuss Museums and the Yolŋu Community.
Mr Poll is Manager of Indigenous Programs at the Australian National Maritime Museum, home to the internationally significant Saltwater bark paintings, which provide profound statements of Yolŋu people’s inalienable rights to sea country.
For the lecture, Mr Poll will reflect on two major curatorial projects at the new Chau Chak Wing Museum, University of Sydney, along with his research into the remarkable legacy of Yirrkala bark paintings in national and international contexts.
The Ruth and Vincent Megaw Annual lecture in Archaeology and Art was established in 2014 to honour the commitment and contributions of Emeritus Professor Vincent Megaw and his late wife Dr M Ruth Megaw to the Flinders University Archaeology department and the Flinders University Museum of Art.
