Transportation: Exploring Australia's convict past - Apr 07, 2018 - Mar 01, 2019

Constructed by convicts between 1852 and 1859, and still remarkably intact, Fremantle Prison, Western Australia’s only World Heritage listed building (Australian Convict Sites) provides one of the most authentic glimpses into convict life in Australia.

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Hougoumont, the last convict ship to arrive in Australia, Transportation examines the forced migration of convicts from Britain to Australia in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Transportation presents the stories of men, women and children forcibly sent to convict sites around Australia, exploring the social tragedy of the convict system as a whole as well as individual stories of personal achievement.

Exhibiting convict material from the Mitchell Library (State Library of New South Wales), Western Australian Museum and the Prison’s own collection, Transportation demonstrates the impact forced migration had on individual transportees and their families, and on the shaping of modern Australian society. The exhibition displays key historic artefacts such as the 1881 Ticket of Leave of Hougoumont convict William Bartlett on display to the public for the first time.

WA Now - Andrew Nicholls - Hyperkulturemia - Dec 15, 2018 - Apr 15, 2019

Andrew Nicholls’ WA Now solo exhibition showcases his recent Hyperkulturemia series for Western Australian (WA) audiences. 

The major focus of his practice for the past five years, Hyperkulturemia is the outcome of a series of residencies in Italy between 2014-2017. Residencies which allowed Nicholls to retrace the 18th century iteration of The Grand Tour. A rite-of-passage that saw young aristocratic men complete their formal education via an extended journey to Italy to view the remnants of classical antiquity and the masterpieces of the Renaissance. The Grand Tour laid the foundations of the Neoclassical movement that would dominate Western aesthetics for a century.

The series’ title refers to the medically false condition of ‘Stendhal Syndrome’, allegedly experienced by Tourists overcome by the splendours of high Renaissance art. The exhibition works aim to evoke a similar sense of disruptive corporeality, while reflecting the semi-mythical position that Italy continues to hold in the Western psyche as a place where reason gives way to sensuality, excessive emotion and desire.

Hyperkulturemia is part of the WA Now exhibition series showcasing leading WA artists.
