Dr Luke Taylor, Deputy Principal Research and Information, completed three weeks of fieldwork with Kuninjku language speaking artists in Maningrida in July 2006 to support the presentation of a keynote address entitled 'Paint as Power Among Kuninjku Artists' to the Re-materialising Colour Symposium at the Centre for Cross-Cultural Research of the Australian National University in September 2006. He also presented a paper on Kuninjku bark painters at the Centre and in the AIATSIS 'Art and Identity' seminar series and a paper on Kuninjku pencil drawings for the Drawn Together Symposium at the CCR in May 2007. He gave three public floor talks at the Mumeka to Milmilngkan: Innovation in Kurulk art exhibition at the Australian National University's Drill Hall Gallery in November and December 2006 and published an essay in the catalogue. Senior artists and their families from Maningrida, Northern Territory, attended these events.
