MAIN GALLERY

 

Yagu Gurlbarl

Official Opening: Sunday 20 January 2pm

Exhibition dates: Friday 18 January – Sunday 24 February 2019

 

Yagu Gurlbarl (Big Secret) artist Julie Dowling explores the theme of the slavery of First Nations peoples both in past centuries and in current Australian society. A series of highly decorated figurative artworks are included that draw in and engage the viewer. Upon closer inspection, there is a strong political trajectory challenging the myth that First Nations peoples were/are lazy and a drain on society. The beauty presented in the works becomes a metaphor for the resilience and wisdom of First Nations peoples to overcome the narrow narrative that has sanitised colonisation.

Maitland Hill

Official Opening: Sunday 20 January 2pm

Exhibition dates: Friday 18 January – Sunday 24 February 2019

 

Maitland Hill is a Nyoongar man born in the country wheat belt town of Pingelly and spent his childhood and youth in the city of Armadale. Big family gatherings were very special times for Maitland, traveling to places like Boddington and having family gatherings.  Many happy times were also spent staying in Bannister and in Boddington with many uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters and cousins. The picture of this place is really special and strongly connected to me and my family and my upbringing.
