Showcasing the pre-eminent art collection in Western Australia

Aboriginal art works to be revealed in the city

05 Feb 2013

Works by more than 35 emerging Western Australian Aboriginal artists will be exhibited to the public in April in the Perth Cultural Centre.

Culture and the Arts Minister John Day said the art works would be part of the Revealed: Emerging Aboriginal Artists from Western Australia 2013 Showcase.

Revealed 2013 will feature works from Aboriginal artists from across the State, including remote communities like Kalumburu, Patjarr and Cue,” Mr Day said.

“The centrepiece of Revealed will be the one-day market at the Perth Cultural Centre on April 13.

“This market will give the artists the opportunity to sell their work directly to the public and share the stories of their art and communities.

“People can expect to see lots of different styles and interpretations of the artists’ relationship with their country.

“I am sure people will be interested to see the colour, skill and depth of these art works.”

Other activities as part of Revealed include an exhibition at the Central Institute of Technology, Northbridge, from April 13 to May 4, and a symposium at the State Library of WA.

Professional development workshops will also be held for the artists and art centre staff.

Revealed was last staged in Perth during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in October 2011.
