South West Central at the Art Gallery of Western Australia
January 30, 2003 - March 30, 2003
South-West Central: Indigenous Art from south Western Australia 1833-2002 presented a comprehensive survey of contemporary Nyoongar art from the Southwest region of Western Australia. Christopher Pease‘s works Monnop(1999) and Nyoogar Dreaming(1999) were featured within the exhibition.
This exciting exhibition was the Gallery’s major contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the Perth International Arts Festival. A comprehensive survey of contemporary Nyoongar art from the Southwest region of Western Australia, South-West Central showcased the wide spectrum of work produced from the Carrolup and Mariibank communities.
The aim of South-West Central was to contribute to an enhanced knowledge and awareness of pertinent social and cultural issues that have affected Nyoongar life. The works displayed provided an insight into life before European contact, Colonisation, issues surrrounding the Stolen Generation and the intertwining of contemporary Indigenous and European cultures. – AGWA
