Protest and Unrest

A new exhibition examining the history of protests and conditions at Fremantle Prison using personal accounts from prisoners, officers and the administration.

  • Dates:May 7 - Nov 20
  • Venue:Fremantle Prison

Details

  • Type:Museum events
  • Audience:Adults,For teens 13-17,For seniors

Description

From violent riots to peaceful sit-outs, Fremantle Prison's new exhibition Protest and Unrest explores the conditions and regime under which prisoners lived, why they felt the need to protest and the ways in which they expressed their dissatisfaction.

Imprisonment means the loss of freedom, but do prisoners also lose their right to basic hygiene, decent food, personal space and safety? If they are dissatisfied how do they fight for change?

Several protests are examined in detail, using personal accounts from prisoners, officers and the administration. The rotten food, appalling living conditions and accusations of torture and abused were used as justification by prisoners for pushing back against authority.

Showing objects never displayed before, such as improvised weapons from the 1988 riot, an electric battery box and prisoner graffiti, this exhibition presents a confronting view of life on the inside.

Visitors will be challenged by the question: in the same situation would you protest too?

IN OCHRE

  • Time(s):10am - 4pm
  • Dates:Oct 12 - 27

  • Venue Address:330 South Terrace, South Fremantle
  • Ticket Price:Free entry

  • Audience:Adults,For seniors
  • Visual Arts:Aboriginal,Craft,Painting

Description

If you’ve travelled north into remote Western Australia, you will be aware of the changing landscape the further north you head. So too with the art. As you travel to isolated art centres located throughout coastal and desert communities you notice styles and materials change from from acrylic to ochre.

IN OCHRE, Artitja Fine Art Gallery’s next exhibition, which opens on 11 October at Earlywork in South Fremantle, is a unique presentation of paintings by Kimberley artists from Kununurra and Kalumburu, three of whom will be present for the opening.

Gallery Director Anna Kanaris explains that it is not often that ochre paintings are the sole focus of an exhibition in Perth.  “There are over 30 paintings in the exhibition and logistically it is quite a commitment to transport them over such a vast distance.  They are all on the frame, so planning and handling needs to be precise”.

The exhibition has a varied aesthetic with a notable difference in style from each community. The Kununurra based Waringarri artists are Mirrawong people who were removed from pastoral leases in the late 60’s and then displaced as a result of the building of Lake Argyle, which meant they settled in and close to the town. 

Motivated by the cultural responsibilities of maintaining connection to their country, these artists paint their Dreaming depicting the sacredness of the land. Much of the imagery is of  maps relating to rivers, hills and open plains.  Within those maps lies a deep knowledge of the artists relationship to the land.

The Kira Kiro artists from Kalumburu on the north Kimberley coast are Kwini people whose art practice is grounded in the rock art tradition, particularly the Wandjina - the ‘rainmaker’ - and the Kira Kiro or Gwion Gwion figures, sometimes referred to as the Bradshaw figures.  Sea life, land animals, flora and bush foods as well as the spiritual figures float around the canvas of these paintings, radiating a strong sense of spirit and care for the land and its creation.

The selection of works for the exhibition was motivated by a visit to the art centre in Kununurra but Anna explains there was further inspiration behind her selection. “Seeing the Wirnan installation by the Waringarri artists and Kira Kiro’s Betty Bundamurra’s paintings at the the Desert, River, Sea exhibition earlier in the year at the Art Gallery of WA was mind blowing.  I knew I had to include Betty’s paintings in the show, so what an honour it is to have Betty as one of the visiting artists!” she said.

Dora Griffiths, artist and Chairperson of the Waringarri Art Centre and Sylvia Djanghara from Kira Kiro Art Centre  will also be in attendance.  CEO of the Aboriginal Art Centre Hub of WA, Chad Creighton will open the exhibition.

The artists will be in the gallery for a special IN CONVERSATION event on Saturday October 12th at 2pm with Anna Kanaris.  Bookings are essential and can be made through Eventbrite.

  • Type:Music
  • Audience:Adults
  • Music:Concert Tours,Country & Folk,Gig Guide

Description

A genuine troubadour, Thomspon is one of Australia's hardest working musicians, touring the world as an independant artist with family in tow, whilst building a loyal fan base over six studio and two live albums. And with 2017's Island, the critical plaudits flowed - a WAM Song of the Year, a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, and high rotation on Double J.

For the recording of Shakespeare Avenue, Thomspon moved his family to the South-West of England, to immerse himself in folk traditions and to write and record with a new approach. His narrative, character based emotive songs have long earned him comparisons to Springsteen and Mellencamp.

Part of the lure of England was Thompson's connection to folk star Seth Lakeman (who has spend the last two years touring the world with Robert Plant) and his Mercury nominated producer brother Sean Lakeman. These two, alongside Sean's partner Kathryn Roberts are a 'virtual folk dynasty' - highly respected on the international folk scene.

A renowned live performer, Thompson will deliver his new songs as well as old over a special two-set show all with the energy and passion that has made him one of Australia's favourite acoustic artists.

A characterful record, its reference points range from classic hip-hop to ancient Southern African sounds. Built on four years of personal and musical soul-searching, it’s an assured statement, the product of meaningful musical connections and of Sampa having to redefine her self-identity away from the comforts of family and old friends.

Following recent live performances at Glastonbury, Love Supreme Jazz Festival, Dark MOFO (Tasmania – alongside FKA Twigs, Kelsey Lu, Nicholas Jaar), Down The Rabbit Hole (Netherlands) and a headline show at Hip-Hop Collection (Paris).

This, for Sampa, is what she’s been trying to do for the past six years: to find new ways of feeling at home and rediscover an emboldened idea of herself.

“Home is described in a lot of ways and means a lot of different things to different people,” she says. “I had to redefine in my mind and in my spirit what home means.” The album is both a re-telling of that journey, and the realisation of her aim; the album walks us through that return to home, while the accomplished sound and lyricism underscores the steps she’s made as a person and artist.
