The Sidney Nolan rebel masterpiece series comes to Perth. AGWA explores the iconic Australian rebel, Ned Kelly, as immortalised in Sidney Nolan’s celebrated series of 26 works from the 1940s.

JULIE DOWLING

BABANYU (FRIENDS FOR LIFE)

2 FEBRUARY – 13 AUGUST

 

The exhibition takes a step back in time to a period (1993–2005) when First Nation Badimaya artist, Julie Dowling, was emerging as one of the most important artists in Western Australia and the country. In this period, the real-life stories she shared about First Nations peoples’ experience in this country were abrupt, brutal and challenging. Many of the stories she shared were, and still are, largely unknown or acknowledged in mainstream Australian

society.
