Over the three and a half weeks in Perth, we asked Yiwarra Kuju visitors to convey what they thought of the exhibition in 5 words or less. Here is the final wordcloud showing the great amount of comments we received.
Yiwarra Kuju opened officially at the Australian Museum in its brand new temporary exhibition space on the 17th December 2011, with a small VIP opening on the 15th. Canning Stock Route Project translator and cultural advisor Putuparri Tom Lawford, filmmaker Curtis Taylor and co-curators Monique La Fontaine and John Carty travelled to Sydney for the opening and spent a few days guiding staff and guests through the exhibition.
Over the last few weeks we have had a few more pieces of international media around the Canning Stock Route Project and Yiwarra Kuju drawn to our attention.
Although Yiwarra Kuju was only open to the public in Perth for three and half short weeks it attracted 33,000 visitors – that is more that the average attendance to a West Coast Eagles game! Absolutely amazing WA!
Yiwarra Kuju has now opened in Sydney where it will be on display at the Australian Museum until the 22 April 2012. For more information visit the Australian Museum website…
