Dhuluny: the war that never ended

Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) presents major exhibition Dhuluny – the war that never ended, curated by Wiradyuri/Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones and Wiradyuri Traditional Owners Central West Aboriginal Corporation. The exhibition is part of The Dhuluny Project – a series of events commemorating the 200-year anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law on 14 August 1824 in the Bathurst region and the ensuing frontier violence.

‘Dhuluny’ means the direct or gospel truth, and the commemoration offers visitors the opportunity to share and understand the true history of our country and celebrate the resilience of the Wiradyuri Nation. Dhuluny – the war that never ended will feature works by established and emerging Wiradyuri artists responding to Martial Law, truth-telling about the Frontier Wars, and the ongoing national significance of the local events of this place.
