Exhibition Runs Sat 2 April – Sun 22 May | Free
Focusing on the intense relationship between the wave, the
board and the rider, Frontier Surfing follows some of the big waves off WA’s
south west and the characters that chase them.
Frontier Surfing tracks WA’s early surfing history,
featuring work by legendary surf photographer John Witzig and a series of
historically significant boards designed to withstand the force of the ocean’s
most colossal waves.
Showcased alongside large-scale images of WA’s most infamous
breaks by big wave photographers Jamie Scott and Russell Ord, interviews with
the surfers who ride them and seminal footage of surfers in action, this
immersive exhibition explores the singular spiritual connection between the
surfer and the wave.
Curated by WA surfer Damon Hurst and FAC Curators Dr Ric
Spencer and Bevan Honey.
