Insider Art Summer 2018

Insider Art: Summer 2018 showcases the creative achievements of incarcerated prisoners from across Western Australia.  The collection of new works exhibited represents a diverse array of traditional and contemporary approaches to art making. 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. Across Western Australia participation in creative processes and formal art classes play an important role in rehabilitation, personal development and complement existing educational programs. 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 re-frame their identity in positive ways. Moreover for many of the Aboriginal artists featured painting provides a way to connect with family, culture and country by drawing upon a long history of shared visual languages. An ongoing initiative between the Department of Justice and Fremantle Prison ensures that entry to this exhibition is free and that many of the works are available for purchase, with proceeds going back to the artists and the exhibition program. Insider Art: Summer 2018 will also showcase ‘Wangka Kutjarra: Two Languages’, songs written, played and recorded by prisoners at the Eastern Goldfields Regional Prison. Featuring songs in both English and local Indigenous languages, the 10 track CD will be available for purchase during the exhibition period. Participants in the project said, ‘Our songs are to send messages to our children’s children teaching our language and culture for future generations’.

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.
