SIX SEASONS GALLERY – OUTSIDE: MATTERS OF THE HEART IN INDIGENOUS ART

NOW ON

 

This new permanent space showcases Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art from the State Art Collection. The first display Outside: Matters of the heart in Indigenous art includes art that deals with the beauty and importance of the land and environment to Aboriginal people, and touches on some of the practices and rituals that connect people to Country. It also alerts us to the history and experiences of being an outsider in white Australian society

WA NOW – GREGORY PRYOR – LOOKING GLASS

2 SEPTEMBER – 15 JANUARY 2018

 

For his WA Now project, artist Gregory Pryor has created a new work, Looking Glass, which draws upon his investigations into isolated landscapes of Western Australia. Pryor undertook a field trip to the region of the tragic Esperance bush fires of 2015. By setting himself in amongst the charcoal remains of the devastated terrain and taking a series of 360-degree photographic notations, Pryor formulated the idea for his panoramic work and its overwhelming enveloping experience, consisting of 1585 sheets of paper.
