Description

Capturing the perspectives of a diverse group of artists, from the state’s renowned and iconic western desert and Kimberley artists, to emerging artists-many from non-traditional arts backgrounds-to established WA artists working here and elsewhere. The exhibition transforms every single gallery space into a celebration of Western Australian art, culture and creativity, including Collective Ground, the first exhibition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander works acquired through AGWA’s 1.5 million dollar Covid-19 Stimulus Package, as well as a new sculpture commission from Ngarralja Tommy May. Artists include: Sarah Bahbah, the WA-raised, LA-based artist with over 1 million Instagram followers; Tim Meakins, whose giant 3D-printed sculptures of weightlifters, posers and grinning weights, offer a playful interpretation of modern fitness culture and occupy AGWA’s new interior rooftop gallery; Bruno Booth’s ‘Adidas’-wearing cats appearing in unexpected places; and recent works by Abdul Abdullah, Yok & Sheryo, Danielle Freakley, Tyrown Waigana and Tarryn Gill. The View From Here coincides with the launch of the new AGWA Rooftop, hosting one of the state’s most significant commissions from a Noongar artist, with Christopher Pease’s sprawling, 34-metre light-based artwork wrapping its exterior walls, overlooking the city skyline.
