Freighting Ideas: There Were Moments of Transformation
Regional Tour | Ningaloo Centre, Exmouth – 30 Sep to 1 Nov
ART ON THE MOVE and the Art Gallery of WA are proud to present There Were Moments of Transformation, the second exhibition of the WA regional touring program Freighting Ideas. Art has the power to transform. Transform thinking, transform objects, transform materials. There Were Moments of Transformation explores the power and fragility of transformation through sculpture, jewellery, ceramics, glass and video works from the Art Gallery of WA Collection.

Finding solace in the Gallery spaces
As Australia and the world continue to grapple with the effects of COVID-19, the AGWA Curators have selected works from the Collection that serve as touch points into the things we’ve missed during this global pandemic.
Works by artists including Willy Lenski, Friendswithyou, Joep Van Lieshout, Robyn O’Neil and Emma Buswell invite you to reflect on life: its ambiguities, cycles, warmth and connection.
We invite you to come along on a journey through the Contemporary and WA Focus galleries on your next visit, and we hope you find solace in our spaces.
