Butal Inu Ngapa Boey: showcasing familial connections to the Torres Strait’s pearling history

Butal Inu Ngapa Boey tells the grassroots story of Torres Strait Islanders and their sentimental relationships with the luggers that served one of our region's largest historical industries. 

Featuring the commissioned works of celebrated local artists including Segar Passi, Alick Tipoti, George Mosby and Erub Arts, as well as historical images and audio visual displays, Butal Inu Ngapa Boey opens 26 July in our Ephraim Bani Gallery.
