Tangentyere and Yarrenyty Arltere
These Tangentyere artists capture living in the town camps in Central Australia and are breaking with tradition, creating experimental art works that are innovative microcosms of the world they live in. The exhibition includes paintings on recycled metal from the Tangentyere artists and recycled soft toy sculpture from Yarrenyty Arltere, Alice Springs. These artists work on canvas as well as recycled materials from the desert, transforming disused objects into contemporary works of art. A once useless object gets doused with lashings of bright acrylic, transforming the wonky surface in a potent visual pun. The exhibition encourages viewers to listen to the artists stories and engage with their histories.

On Their Own Child Migration Exhibition

Projektet Ola Johansson and Amanda Newall (Sweden)
Projektet draws on the notion of the immune system as a bio-artistic blueprint of personal and cultural changes.
In a joint residency with SymbioticA, Amanda Newall and Ola Johansson conduct lab-based research along with applied performance work in local communities in the metropolitan Perth area. SymbioticA is an artistic laboratory at UWA dedicated to the research, learning, critique and hands-on engagement with the life sciences. The exhibition will involve a variety of media, such as lab results, costume, physical objects, video and performative actions. Experiments with our most outreaching and personal site of identity, the corporeal immune system, will provoke graphic, material, conceptual and live reactions that applies to site-specific circumstances where social actors will ultimately come up against the limits of their own identities/communities. Bio-artistic game concepts will incite personal and collective (inter)actions toward future communal relations beyond biological determinism and cultural utopias.
Shaun Tan: Suburban Odyssey
Academy Award winner and favourite local son Shaun Tan comes to FAC with a collection of never before seen large scale paintings, small oil sketches, drawings, preparatory video work and personal sketchbooks.
For the first time Shaun Tan: Suburban Odyssey charts the journey of Shaun Tan’s work from carefully observed yet lyrical paintings of Perth’s suburbs to oil studies and drawings that develop characters and narratives which inhabit these vast landscapes. Shaun Tan: Suburban Odyssey highlights the poignant relationship between Tan’s suburban observations, often drawn and painted while on walks, and the place they create for his universally popular book illustrations and short stories.
Shaun Tan is the illustrator and author of award-winning books such as The Red Tree, The Lost Thing, Tales of Outer Suburbia and The Arrival. In 2011 he won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film for The Lost Thing and the world’s premier prize for children’s literature, the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award. Tan was born in Fremantle in 1974, grew up in Hillarys and now lives and works in Melbourne.

Shirley Clancy’s clear and magical realism style takes the viewer into a consciousness of universal myths and stories. In these altered realities, highly detailed settings are invaded by things too strange for the rational mind to acknowledge, but all too familiar in the world of dreams. With a seductive charm, and allusions to iconic paintings and figures of the past, they invite the viewer to interpret his or her own individual fantasies.
Intermix | Group Exhibition
This painting exhibition features the work of five WA artists; Ann Land, Elisabeth Ribul, Louise Paul, Angela Carter and Maxine Murray and represents each artist’s search for their own point of view. There is a sense of freedom as each in their own way explores the emotional possibilities of light, colour, texture, point of view and form. Curated by Marianna Atkins.
Still Me Exhibition

Still Me celebrates the lives of ten people drawn from all walks of life who live in and around Fremantle. The composite photographic portraits capture each person as they are today with an image of their youthful selves. The images speak of the preciousness of an individual life; drawing our attention to contemplate the inevitable march of time, the richness of life’s experience and our own mortality.
For a reflective journey from another time and place this exhibtion is not to be missed.

Desert Psychedelic: Jimmy Pike Exhibition
When Jimmy Pike was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1981 no one could have guessed that a global design icon would be the result. Serving time in Fremantle Prison, Jimmy began taking the art classes on offer, and it was not long before Prison art teachers Steve Culley and David Wroth recognised his eye for colour and design. It was from this that the Desert Designs brand was born.
This exhibition, created by artisan and supported by Museums and Gallery Services Queensland, celebrates the creative achievements of Jimmy Pike, one of Australia’s great Indigenous artists and the designer of some of the most extraordinary Australian textiles of the twentieth century.
Pike’s prints and paintings can be found in major national and international gallery collections. His book illustrations and innumerable textile designs cement his place as a versatile and visionary artist.
