The Milingimbi Bäpurru Artist Memorial print project was conceived in 2018, following the sudden death of, Mrs Gorryindi, an important artist, director and art worker. Each print is representative of a specific clan. We have aspired to include all of the clan’s that belong to the artists that have worked, and contributed to Milingimbi’s rich artistic heritage.

The copper etched plates used to print from are now mounted on the external wall of the mud brick building that houses our art centre, and are often used as a teaching tool when school children visit the centre.

The Kluge Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, USA acquired the Milingimbi Bäpurru Artist Memorial suite and exhibited the works as part of Bäpurru ga Bäpurru exhibition. Bäpurru prints have also been aquired by Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney and Charles Darwin University Gallery, Darwin.
