Reform The History of Reformative Measures

Prisons serve four main functions in society. They punish offenders, protect the community from criminals, act as a disincentive to people considering crime and provide prisoners the opportunity to reform before their release back into the community. The exhibition Reform: A History of Reformative Measures at Fremantle Prison explores what strategies were employed at Fremantle Prison to control and change prisoner behaviour. While Fremantle Prison was at times a place of harsh punishment, it also provided prisoners with the opportunity to acquire new skills and reform. The exhibition explores the practice of religion, education, work and training at Fremantle Prison through its 136 years of operational history. A number of original documents, artworks and objects from the Fremantle Prison Collection illustrate this reformative process.

Brewery Tours at Little Creatures

One shared belief when Little Creatures was just a twinkle in our eyes was that breweries over the years have hardly been the most romantic of places. Hidden behind big brick walls and imposing gates, very little was visible to the passing community. It is our ambition to change all that, to become an open and transparent Brewery that welcomes all walks of life to experience the wonder of brewing. Come on down, say hi and explore our little piece of brewing happiness. Not sure what style of beer is for you? Want to learn about all things brewing along with the Little Creatures story? Brewery Tours with one of our resident hop heads include learning about all the great ingredients we use and the brewing process, along with a guided tasting of all of our beers and ciders. Tours run daily at 12, 1, 2 and 3pm.  To join, head on into the Brewhouse (located directly inside our brewery) before we start and sign up. Must be 18yo to join a brewery tour. We also offer free bike hire. Grab a bike for the day and explore our community. The Brewhouse is also the place to grab some crafty gear and pick up a six-pack of your favourite beer. There's a great outdoor area and since we welcome all walks of life, feel free to bring your pooch down too.

Wildlife Zoo at the Markets

We love having West Oz Wildlife, one of Perth’s leading wildlife petting zoos, at Fremantle Markets. They provide a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with native Australian animals such as koalas, snakes & dingoes. You can usually only glimpse such animals amidst big crowds in larger reserves or zoos. Our Wildlife Zoo offers a more intimate approach, allowing both children and adults to experience these animals in a smaller and more relaxed setting. Entry by Gold Coin Donation. Don't forget your camera!

I WAS HERE

In I WAS HERE seven artists turn conventional history on its head. The world is flipped upside down, long held beliefs are disproved and fact replaces fiction as the artists grapple with what’s real, imagined or forgotten over time. Comprising photographic and sculptural works I WAS HERE is a fascinating commentary on history itself and our relationship to the past. Robyn Stacey (NSW) has used a camera obscura to produce rich and vivid images of the studios of iconic Australian artists. Emerging artist Tom Buckland (ACT) presents a constellation of imagined narratives that audiences view one at a time through a series of peepholes. Alex Seton (NSW) continues his work with marble, creating sculptures which highlight our transient impact on the world around us. He also disproves the existence of an island which has been included on maps for many years. Amy Spiers (VIC) looks at how Joan Lindsay’s famous Australian novel Picnic at Hanging Rock and the 1975 film adaptation has, in the public consciousness, robbed Hanging Rock of its true history. Kokatha and Nukunu artist Yhonnie Scarce (VIC) reflects on lost connection to place for Aboriginal people forcibly removed from their homelands through a series of delicate hand-blown glass sculptures. Kate McMillan (UK) presents a series of photographs based on the intriguing and often forgotten history of The Buried Village in New Zealand. Lake Tarawera was the site of a devastating volcanic eruption in the late 19th century that buried villages surrounding the lake. Wanda Gillespie (NZ) amalgamates mythologies to create exquisite handcrafted objects which bear all the hallmarks of cultural artefacts but are in fact completely made up. Imagining societies that could have existed, her works are without history. I WAS HERE is curated by Anna Louise Richardson (WA). Opening Fri 21 Jul | 6:30pm | FreeExhibition runs Sat 22 Jul – Sat 16 Sep

Ian Strange ISLAND

Perth-raised, New York-based artist Ian Strange returns for the world premiere of his latest exhibition ISLAND. Continuing his investigations into architecture and the home ISLAND features large scale photographs of three interventions on foreclosed suburban houses in Ohio’s Rust Belt region. The home is a symbol of family, community and safety. Approaching it through the metaphor of the desert island, a place of refuge and sovereignty but simultaneously entrapment, Strange highlights how fragile and unstable home is in the wake of the GFC and the ensuing American housing crisis. Alongside the photographs, Strange presents a section of a now-demolished home from New Jersey and found artefacts collected at the intervention sites. ISLAND also features a major new site-specific installation based on an, abstracted house framework. Strange rose to international prominence as a street artist in the early 2000s and has gone on to exhibit widely across Australia and overseas with solo exhibitions at Standard Practice, New York; the National Gallery of Victoria; and the Canterbury Museum, New Zealand. His art practice has investigated the themes of home and suburbia for the past eight years and he was recently the subject of a six-part ABC documentary series HOME: The Art of Ian Strange. World Premiere | Opening Fri 21 Jul | 6:30pm | FreeExhibition runs Sat 22 Jul – Sat 16 Sep
