See below for the full Winter Art Walk program:
ON LOCATION // Capone, McMillan, Muller and McCabe
26 June- 24 July
On Location presents selected works that have been informed by the experience of place. This assembly of works captures the energies of experiencing a place, with an emphasis on mind-scapes over pictorial representation. Amongst artists featured are Jacobus Capone, Kate McMillan, Tom Muller and Dan McCabe.
PERIPHERIES //Abdul Abdullah and Abdul-Rahman Abdullah
7 August – 11 September
Peripheries is a much-anticipated exhibition in which brothers, Abdul Abdullah and Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, join forces to co-present new work in Perth. . It is the second iteration of a project that has been informed by an ongoing dialogue about perceptions of centrality and peripheries with each of the brothers working on opposite sides of the continent and exploring cultural and social margins.
LA MARUJA // Pilar Mata Dupont
25 September – 23 October
Pilar Mata Dupont unveils a series of six new large scale photographic works entitled ‘La Maruja’ in a solo exhibition. The Artist’s heritage and upbringing across Argentina, Australia and Brunei Darussalam informs her interest in re-imagining histories and classical texts that have constructed dominant narratives in Western society. Her work always exudes high production values and poise while poetically delving into the fallibility of structures of history, gender, and memory.
STORY OF THE BEGINNING
9 July – 7 August
In celebration of NAIDOC week, KAMILE GALLERY hosts a curated collection of Indigenous artworks that form the ‘Story of the Beginning’ exhibition.
WE ARE NATURE
20 August – 18 September
Experience the first CO2 neutral exhibition in Australia. Established contemporary artists stand together to showcase artwork reflecting nature and the global climate crisis at KAMILĖ GALLERY and extending to the Cathedral Square.
ART COLLECTIVE WA
NEW WORK OF THREE ARTISTS // Eveline Kotai, Jane Martin & Angela Stewart
3 July – 31 July
Bringing together the work of three highly accomplished artists, Eveline Kotai, Jane Martin & Angela Stewart, the works in this exhibition are nostalgic, intuitive and unexpected. Traditional approaches to methodology meld with contemporary elements, sharing glimpses into the everyday through detailed still lifes, chiaroscuro treatments and bold colour and patternation combinations.
FENNEL AND CROW // JO DARBYSHIRE
21 August – 18 September
New paintings by Jo Darbyshire depict landscapes close to home, explored on solo meanderings during the quietude of lockdown. The work captures the sense of stillness and the heightened perception of the beauty of nature, as well as touching on the sense of foreboding felt during that time.
CHANGING PATTERNS // PENNY COSS
21 August – 18 September
Like a record or meditation on all the weathers within us, Penny Coss pours colour onto paper – a repetitious process that echoes conversations with her mother about the weather. Like the body’s rhythmic memory, the symbolic logic of the venn diagram-like paintings, of overlapping circles and other shapes, highlights how things are similar and different.
