Forthcoming Exhibitions

Western Australian Indigenous Art Awards 2009
25 July – 15 November 2009

The finalists for the Western Australian Indigenous Art Awards 2009 represent artists from across the continent working in a dynamic range of media, including sculpture, painting and photography. This year the exhibition incorporates eight Western Australian artists and eight more from across Australia. Many artists working predominantly in sculptural forms are featured – including the traditional Dari and mask-making skills of Ricardo Idagi, the incredibly lush Morning Star Pole of Gali Yalkarriwuy Gurruwiwi and the monumental rusted forms of Lorraine Connelly-Northey. The exhibition will also include majestic paintings and insightful photographic works, which will again make the Western Australian Indigenous Art Awards a unique and unforgettable experience not to be missed.

The awards and exhibition are supported by the Government of Western Australia through the Department of Culture and the Arts.
