Land and Sky Warlpiri Artists of the Tanami Desert

The paintings in this exhibition refer to different Jukurrpa related to aspects of the land and the sky. As many senior and well-known artists of the Warlukurlangu art centre have passed on, the younger artists are starting to make their mark and continue the culture of their forebears. Generations of Warlpiri artists have carried on the traditions of their culture and and the preservation of Jukurrpa - now new artists at the community of Yuendumu are coming forward to take their place in culture and Law. Paintings are grounded in the Jukurrpa or Dreaming Law of the Country, and this knowledge is passed down through traditional practices, ceremony, song and art.

At which point it will promptly collapse under the weight of overwhelming incompetence and grift.In early 2020 CIOMA (2020) will be built. Utilising an exploit in the algorithm that runs the Department of Burnouts and Jetskis (and the arts), Jessee Lee Johns (2020) secures all W$200.42 of the last round of funding before the Westralian government slides into complete disfunction. He builds the gallery in a former industrial area on the southern coast of Perth, completing it just prior to being summoned back to the present. In the following weeks he will build a residence and begin a residency program free of the usual perks, in which he intends to live out his days running the sole surviving western arts institution, plying his trade for a dwindling and increasingly disinterested patronage.From may 21st until June 22nd 2018, CIOMA (2020) will be manifest within PSAS. So come down, witness the future, and learn about the cultural wasteland that will be post collapse Westralia...This project is supported by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.

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.
