This essay was produced to accompany the survey exhibition, 'Looking Forward, Looking Back: Contemporary works from the East Kimberley'. Taking the notion of 'Two-Way' as championed by the late Gija elder Hector Jandany, the essay charts a brief history of the Jirrawun art movement in light of its intercultural character. It argues for a more complex understanding of the ethics and intent that underwrote this movement, and places this in a broader discussion about reconciliation and cultural exchange in Australia.
