SPAN

In a world full of movement the space between two points is constantly being traversed. SPAN brings together five WA artists whose work reaches out – transitioning across margins which are personal and global, political and geographical – between self and others, artist and viewer. Comprising work from Susanna Castleden, Olga Cironis, Tanya Lee, Clyde McGill and Andrew Sunley Smith, SPAN traverses the connection and disconnection of boundaries while mapping the passage of the journey. A life-size print of a cruise ship gangway, a series of sculptured industrial engine parts, human hair woven on a loom, neighbours grooming each other…

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.

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!
