Love, Displaced

9 Feb — 11 May

 

In this century, feelings of love and empathy are often filtered through social media platforms and 24-hour news cycles. In Love, Displaced, film-based and video art offers new and innovative modes of navigating the white noise of contemporary life towards places of re-sensitisation and emotional engagement.

 

The exhibition brings together some of the world’s leading contemporary artists: Jacobus Capone, Richard Lewer (NZ), Tracey Moffatt and Gary Hillberg, Christian Thompson; AES+F (Russia), Jeremy Deller and Cecilia Bengolea (UK, Argentina/France), Roee Rosen (Israel). Three of the Australian artists have specific links to WA, either their birthplace or the subject of works presented.

 

A Perth Festival exhibition supported by Visual Arts Program Partner Wesfarmers Arts.

 

Carrolup Revisited: A Journey through the South West of Western Australia

9 Feb — 29 Jun

 

Carrolup Revisited: A Journey through the South West of Western Australia celebrates the artists well-known for their role in the Carrolup School of Art.

 

Today this small group of children are remembered for their distinctive representational drawings in pastel.  As members of the stolen generations, removed from their families and relocated to the Carrolup Native Settlement without warning, they lived in isolation from the world. These small works on paper, speak to their strength and willingness to survive, and is a reminder of the fortitude of Aboriginal people in the harshest of circumstances to create and imagine new worlds.
