Screen Space– Megan Cope

29 September 2018 – 28 January 2019

The Blaktism 2014 is the first standalone video work by artist Megan Cope. It is highly theatrical in its examination of Aboriginal identity and issues of authenticity that are faced by fair-skinned Aboriginal people.

 

It does this by looking at Australian society’s intensive focus on skin colour as a way of deciding who is and isn’t a “real” Aboriginal person in urban areas.

Culture Juice Beyond Bling!

13 October 2018 – 14 January 2019

 

Building on the success of The Rise of Sneaker Culture and Heath Ledger: A Life in Pictures, AGWA presents the next exhibition in its Culture Juice program: Beyond Bling! celebrating, exploring and making jewellery and adornment.


Centred on 300 varied pieces from the State Art Collection from the 1800s to today, Beyond Bling! unlocks the vaults to showcase the best, the bizarre and the most sophisticated jewels in its historical and contemporary collections. Moving from bold and captivating wearable art to quiet and subtle, almost private, personal interventions, the show will change how you think about what jewellery is and can be.

spaced 3: north by southeast

18 August 2018 – 7 January 2019

Organised by the WA-based International Art Space, spaced 3: north by southeast brings together 11 artists from Australia and the Nordic region.

 

Artistic explorers of a different kind are celebrated in spaced 3: north by southeast. Six Australian artists completed artistic residencies in the Nordic heartlands of Finland, Iceland, Denmark and Sweden and five Nordic artists find their place in Western Australia’s rural and remote communities. Using sculpture, video, photography and installation, this show is an enlightening series of windows onto the world we know, and the world we have yet to understand.
