Butcher Cherel Janangoo was a key elder of the Gooniyandi language group in the Kimberley and was instrumental in the retention of men’s law ceremony at Muludja Community. Janangoo features a selection of Butcher’s paintings from the early 2000s, which he made to preserve and transmit this significant body of cultural knowledge to the younger generation. These works have never been shown outside of Fitzroy Crossing. Curated by Lynley Nargoodah and presented in association with Perth Festival and Mangkaja Arts.
Opening Wednesday 5 February.
