French Explorers in WA

You are invited to view two exquisite exhibitions that celebrate Western Australia’s French connections. The Art of Science: Baudin's Voyagers 1800-1804 For the first time since they were completed over 200 years ago this exhibition brings original paintings and drawings from the Museum of Natural History in Le Havre, France to Australia. Baudin’s ships, Géographe and Naturaliste embarked from Le Havre in October 1800 carrying an impressive group of scientists. Lavishly funded by Napoléon Bonaparte, their agenda was the discovery and study of natural sciences, underpinned by the emergence of new ideas and philosophies of reason. Never seen before in Australia, items include Baudin’s chronometer, beautiful coastal profiles, hand drawn maps, and Baudin’s personal journal from France’s National Archives. Paintings and drawings by Baudin’s artists were created on the shores and off the coasts of Australia capturing some of the first European views of Australian animals, landscapes and very first portraits of Aboriginal people. Return to Australia: Freycinet 1818 Discover the science and stories behind this amazing journey as we commemorate the 200th anniversary of Freycinet’s expedition to Western Australia in the Uranie. As Commander of a scientific expedition taking him across the world, Louis de Freycinet arrived in Shark Bay on 12 September 1818.  Other than his official obligations, he had a secret motive — to retrieve the historically significant pewter plate erected there in 1697 by Dutch mariner Willem de Vlamingh. With her husband Louis’ assistance,  Rose de Freycinet smuggled herself aboard the expedition and became the second woman to circumnavigate the globe, and the first to write a full account of her journey. Her diary survives today and presents a unique and genuine perspective about this long and eventful expedition. Entry to French Explorers in Western Australia is free. Museum entry fees apply.

Ikuntji Artists

Ikuntji paintings are highly recognizable for their broad planes of bold colour, often incorporating traditional motifs and figures. The experimentation and innovation for which the painting from Ikuntji is known has been received enthusiastically by collectors and galleries alike. The combination of rich cultural heritage and highly developed sense of artistic freedom has produced work that stands strongly in the context of international contemporary painting.

Insider Art Spring 2018

Insider Art: Spring 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. 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. 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 re-frame their identity in positive ways. 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 will be available for purchase with proceeds going back to the artists and the exhibition program.

Painting on Country Utopia Artists

A mesmerising exhibition of fine dot work by artists from Utopia. The artists have asserted their artistic and cultural credentials since the 1980s when the elaborate stories and ceremonies of Alyawarr and Anmatyerre language groups were first painted on canvas. The use of finely dotted designs and detailed stories have bought Utopia artists into prominence in the Aboriginal art world. The shimmering and expansive paintings that are made of fine dots, reflect the desert homelands and the stories that give deep meaning to all elements of the land and its resources

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.
