The Arnhembrand project aims to raise national and global awareness of the work by Indigenous communities living in west Arnhem Land to preserve their unique culture and ecology. ARNHEMBRAND - Light, Stone, Fire showcases works by three distinct Australian artists, Alexander Boynes, David Leece and Mandy Martin, who each explore these environmental and cultural concerns with a unique creative voice and across a vibrant and diverse range of media. The Arnhembrand Bininj collection of paintings, including individual works by Alexander Boynes, David Leece and Mandy Martin were dispatched directly after exhibition at Space Gallery, Macquarie Group, Sydney in July 2017 to the archive collection of the Center for Art + Environment, Nevada Museum of Art. There they join the archive collection of the previous art and science project that these three artists also exhibited in together here at Australian Galleries, Desert Lake, Art, Science and Stories in 2013.
