Following the Federal Government’s 13 March announcement on COVID-19 and the ban on public gatherings of more than 500 people we are compelled to make changes to this year’s Revealed program.
After discussion with the Department of Local Government, Sports and Cultural Industries, FAC advises that the Revealed Art Market (3 & 4 April) and the Revealed Exhibition Opening Night Event (2 April) have been cancelled.
The Revealed Exhibition will continue as scheduled and will be open to the public from Friday 3 April, with works in the exhibition for sale.
The Revealed Professional Development Program has also been cancelled.
The cancellation of the Art Market will result in a significant loss of income to WA’s 25 Aboriginal Art Centres and independent Aboriginal artists. FAC will participate in discussions with the key stakeholders to identify other practical alternative sales opportunities that may be available.
FAC will also discuss with DLGSC and the sector alternative ways Revealed’s successful Professional Development program for artists in particular, might be delivered in 2020.
FAC will provide regular updates as plans develop.
Fremantle Arts Centre
Revealed is the State Government’s annual program that supports primarily emerging WA Aboriginal Artists and WA’s Aboriginal Arts Centres through professional development, exhibition and sales opportunities. FAC has delivered Revealed since 2016.
