This collaboration between the City of Perth and Artitja Fine Art highlights the importance of country through imagery and storytelling.
A visual exploration of complex stories around the geography and narratives of the land, this exhibition sees artworks from Aboriginal art centres throughout WA paired with a selection of Aboriginal artworks from the City of Perth Cultural Collections.
With over 40 artists from regions as distant as Kalumburu and Balgo in the Kimberley, to the Pilbara and Tjukurlu in the western desert and Kalka on the WA/SA/NT border, the exhibition gives an insight into the cultural importance of place and story.
