Kitty Kantilla (Kutuwulumi Purawarrumpatu) (Tiwi c. 1928–2003) produced an exceptional body of work from the 1970s until her last days in 2003. The National Gallery of Victoria has a major holding of Kantilla’s works across all media that has been built up through close liaison with Jilamara Arts & Craft Association from 1991 onwards. In February 2001, after a year of 1995 negotiation, Una Rey manager of Jilamara invited the NGV to publish a book on Kitty Kantilla and to stage the retrospective exhibition.
