Insider Art Summer 2017

Insider Art: Summer 2017 showcases the creative achievements of incarcerated prisoners from across Western Australia.  A joint initiative of the Department of Justice and Fremantle Prison, this quarterly exhibition is on show in the old Print Shop (Fremantle Prison Gallery). These exhibitions are always diverse in style and ideas.  Pieces exhibited include those from traditional Aboriginal artists with 50,000 years of culture to draw upon; those created by prisoners engaged in tertiary courses in contemporary art practice; and everything in between.  Participation in the creative process offers prisoners more than simple education and recreation.  The production of artworks can be an important component in their rehabilitation as it allows them space for creativity and personal development.  This can help prisoners to reframe their identity in positive ways. For many, it becomes a connection to family, culture and country.  Entry to the exhibition is free, and many of the works are available for purchase.

Museum of Water

Museum of Water is a radically different exhibition that showcases, in Australia’s driest state, our connection to the world’s most essential life source. Commissioned by the Perth Festival, UK artist Amy Sharrocks and the Museum custodians have been towing their rusty trailer around the State for over a year, turning strangers into friends and liquid into art as they collect watery donations and the memories that go with them. The exhibition is the culmination of the last year’s work. View the ever-growing collection as you walk through more than 500 bottles of water, each with its own remarkable story. There are samples from Poison Gully and the Great Barrier Reef, grey water from a laundry and a splash from a Paralympian’s swimming pool. You can also follow a stream of water words as the Museum’s custodians wander the collection and share the many tales behind each bottle with visitors. The exhibition will be complimented by a range of public programs running each weekend, including tours, talks and workshops. View the full program on the Perth Festival website.

Transportation Exhibition

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Hougoumont, the last convict ship to arrive in Australia, Fremantle Prison’s new exhibition Transportation examines the forced migration of convicts from Britain to Australia in the 18th and 19th centuries. Transportation presents the stories of men, women and children forcibly sent to convict sites around Australia, exploring the social tragedy of the convict system as a whole as well as individual stories of personal achievement. Exhibiting convict material from the Mitchell Library (State Library of New South Wales), Western Australian Museum and the Prison’s own collection, Transportation demonstrates the impact forced migration had on individual transportees and their families, and on the shaping of modern Australian society. The exhibition displays key historic artefacts such as the 1881 Ticket of Leave of Hougoumont convict William Bartlett, on display to the public for the first time. Transportation is on show at the Fremantle Prison Gallery until March 2019.
