An ART ON THE MOVE touring exhibition.
On Track showcases the dynamic development of Western Australian Aboriginal artists' expression over the last decade.
32 works have been selected from the prestigious University of Western Australia, Berndt Museum of Anthropology collection.
The exhibition presents a unique opportunity to view the diversity of regional and artistic perspectives within the contemporary Western Australian setting. Commentaries and questioning of family and work experiences, social comment, perspectives on misson and station life are some of the themes the artists explore.
Artists from the Kimberley, Pilbara, Western Desert, Murchison/Gascoyne and South-West regions are represented including senior and respected artists; Julie Dowling, Jody Broun and Norma MacDonald from Perth, Mary McLean from the Eastern Goldfields, Daisy Andrews
and Butcher Cherel of Fitzroy Crossing, Donny Woolagudga from Derby, and Alan and Peggy Grifftihs of Kununurra.
On Track has been funded and commissioned by the Department of Premier and Cabinet as part of the State’s 175th Anniversary Celebrations.
Inspired by a previous Berndt Museum exhibition, Aboriginal Artists of the South-West: Past andPresent, Dr Gallop commissioned a broader retrospective of contemporary Aboriginal art from across the entire state as a fitting part of the State’s 175th Anniversary Celebrations.
