In October 2009 artists Djambawa Marawili, Marrirra Marawili, Marrnyula Mumumggurr, Liyawaday Wirrpanda and Mulkun Liyawaday participated in a printmaking workshop with master printmaker Basil Hall at the community of Yilpara, working alongside visiting artists Fiona Hall, Jörg Schmeisser, Judy Watson and John Wolseley.

Featuring over 20 prints Djalkiri—we are standing on their names—Blue Mud Bay is the culmination of this vibrant cross-cultural printmaking exchange, which saw the artists make trips to country, visit ancestral sites and share traditional and scientific knowledge in the company of ethno-biologist Glenn Wightman, anthropologist Howard Morphy and photographer Peter Eve.

Presented by Artback NT: Arts Development and Touring and Nomad Art Productions.
