Six Seasons Indigenous Gallery – Outside: Matters of the heart in Indigenous art

Exhibition and Shows

27 Jun 2018 to 31 Dec 2018

The new Six Seasons Gallery (named after the Noongar six seasons) is a space dedicated to the display and interpretation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art from the State Art Collection. It is part of the Art Gallery of Western Australia (AGWA) Collection five pathways, many journeys rehang.

The first display is Outside: Matters of the heart in Indigenous art. This exhibition includes art that deals with the beauty and importance of the land and environment to Aboriginal people, and touches on some of the practices and rituals that connect people to ‘Country’ – a word Aboriginal people use to describe the lands and places in Australia to which they have traditional ties.

The exhibition, however, illustrates more than people’s love of Country. It also alerts us to the history and experiences of being an outsider in white Australian society.

Outside includes works of art by artists such as Shane Pickett, Lance (Tjyllyungoo) Chadd, Danie Mellor, Brenda L. Croft, Lena Nyadbi and Lin Onus, who, together, bring the idea of “outside” inside for all of us to see. Paintings, photography, drawings, prints and sculpture fill the show.
