Exhibition opening cancelled
19 March – In a measure to safeguard public health, the City of Fremantle has decided to close Fremantle Arts Centre, the Moores Building Gallery and other services from Monday 23 March until further notice. The Revealed Exhibition will therefore not be opening as scheduled on Friday 3 April. A catalogue of the exhibition and details about how to purchase works will be released shortly.
14 March – 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.
The Revealed Exhibition showcases over 100 of the best new and emerging Aboriginal artists from WA’s remote and regional art centres, as well as independent and Noongar artists from metropolitan Perth and the South West. The works span a breadth of styles and mediums including painting, installation, video, textiles, photography, print media, jewellery, carving and sculpture.
All works in the exhibition are for sale. Purchasing works from the show is a great way to celebrate and support the next generation of WA’s Aboriginal artists.
