Indian textiles are world-famous for being exquisite, handmade and finely crafted. They represent a compelling aesthetic with deep roots and profound cultural meaning. Unfolding: New Indian Textiles is an elegant exhibition which highlights the supreme craftsmanship and beauty of work by contemporary Indian textile designers and artists, drawing on these traditions. Featuring saris, uncut cloth and street wear, Unfolding examines the ways in which the traditional skills, motifs and production methods, developed over centuries, are evolving in light of international influences and modern technologies.Curated by WA artist Maggie Baxter, who has had an intimate connection with fine Indian textile makers for 25 years, the show coincides with the WA launch of her book Unfolding: Contemporary Indian Textiles. The book will be available to purchase from FOUND at Fremantle Arts Centre. Join us at the opening on Friday 31 July at 6.30 pm as we celebrate with an Indian feast and a performance from tabla master percussionist Vikneswaran Ramakrishnan, followed by the desi music beats of Bhangra DJ MixtaBishi. Plus have your hands adorned with designs by one of our Mehndi (henna) artists who’ll be running a free henna station on the evening. * Fremantle Arts Centre is operated by the City of Fremantle.
In late 2014, a small group of established Fremantle artists came together spontaneously with the idea to open their homes and studios to the public for one weekend. At short notice, over 400 people visited each day and Artwalk Freo was born. Building on the success of that inaugural event, this year the artists will once again open to the public on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th of September. Why not bring Dad along for a unique Fathers Day celebration! The creative process can be a solitary one and people rarely have the opportunity to glimpse inside a working studio and observe. An artist's studio is where all the inspiration, sketches, thoughts and ideas merge together to become something wonderful. For Artwalk Freo visitors, being able to walk around and soak in that creative atmosphere, and discuss artworks with the artists can be an insightful and inspiring experience! This year, some of the Artwalk Freo artists have also invited friends and guest artists from other creative disciplines to enhance the experience and have some fun. Guest artists include Ron Nyisztor, Penny Bovell, Penny Coss and writer-radio presenter Adam Shand. Artwalk Freo will be on regardless of the weather forecast, so if you're game so are we! There will also be Art Talks held during the day in each studio. New work, early work and studies will be available for sale and each artist will have their own payment options: receipted cash, credit card, direct deposit and lay-by. Refreshments and other treats will also be available for sale.

In Bahalana Fiona Gavino (WA) uses Filipino basket weaving techniques to create large-scale sculptural installations. Inspired by a 2014 residency in Manila, she responds to the resilience of Filipino identity after more than 300 years of colonial occupation. By engaging with the country’s material cultural traditions of basket weaving, Gavino discovered a universal language, connecting with locals through her work. These works were first exhibited at Pan Project Space run by 98B COLLABoratory, an artist-run-initiative in Manila. Opening Friday 31 July at 6.30 pm. * Fremantle Arts Centre is operated by the City of Fremantle.
WA artist Alistair Rowe completed a residency in Delhi in 2014, spending eight weeks in Chandni Chowk, one of the city’s oldest, biggest and busiest bazaars. Inspired by the market’s sprawling network of narrow laneways and heritage as part of the 17th century Mughal capital, Rowe has created a series of sculptural works which beautifully combine the bazaar’s improvised and informal building methods with the refined and complex geometries which characterise Mughal architecture. Opening Friday 31 July at 6.30 pm. * Fremantle Arts Centre is operated by the City of Fremantle.
