Our Place – Our Time: an art exhibition for NAIDOC week

Friday 6th July / presented by James Hall

Creating awareness and making cultural connections is the mantra of South Fremantle based Indigenous Art Gallery Artitja Fine Art, who this year will come together with the City of Melville through NAIDOC WEEK 2018 to present an art exhibition with a strong emphasis on the work of women artists.

This years’ theme Because of Her We Can is an acknowledgement and celebration of the strength and capacity of Indigenous women and their ongoing influence on making lives better.

In celebration of this year’s theme, OUR PLACE – OUR TIME will be on display alongside the City of Melville’s art collection by Indigenous women artists.

To compliment the City’s display, Artitja Fine Art will be exhibiting paintings from remote communities, as far away as Balgo, in the East Kimberley, to Indulkana in the Pitjantjatjara lands in the South Australian desert region, and wonderful, quirky soft sculptures as well as a range of small metal hand cut and painted metal dogs from the western desert.

OUR PLACE – OUR TIME is a free exhibition.

James Hall spoke to Artitja Fine Art founder Anna Kanaris about the exhibition.
