Revealed is a showcase for emerging Aboriginal artists from across Western Australia. The showcase starts on October 24 with an exhibition of high quality works of art at Gallery Central – Central Institute of Technology. Discover the next generation of emerging talent.
Artists and art centre staff will be in Perth for the exhibition and a two-day professional development program, including art workshops and industry development forums. In addition, three Aboriginal artsworkers have been selected to be mentored as part of Revealed.
The highlight of the program will be a bustling marketplace where visitors can take the rare opportunity to buy direct from artists and the 21 Art Centres on Friday and Saturday, 28 and 29 October. Stacks of bargain-priced paintings, prints, wood and fibre works from across the State will be up for grabs in a friendly and informal atmosphere. (Hours are 12-4)
Around 100 participants will travel in from the 20 Art Centres, mostly from remote communities. The project is organised by a multidisciplinary team, led by consultant Tim Acker and Thelma John (Central’s art gallery Manager). Revealed is produced in partnership with the Department of Culture and the Arts and supported by the Department of Indigenous Affairs and the Federal Government through the Office of The Arts.
The exhibition and marketplace are both part of the Commonwealth Festival Perth program.
