Through Our Eyes
The Canning Stock Route
05 September 2008 to 18 October 2008
Why should the Beijing Olympics get all the culture?
Through the eyes of emerging and established Aboriginal artists, FORM's innovative Canning Stock Route Project has resulted in the creation of over 200 works from over nine remote community art centers across the Pilbara, Kimberley and Midwest regions, celebrating their countries surrounding the Canning Stock Route.
Sponsored by BHP Billiton Iron Ore, 19 of these works will be showcased at the Beijing Olympics, an incredible opportunity to raise both the artists and their enterprises' profile on a global stage.
And Port Hedland won't be missing out with the Courthouse Gallery showcasing an exquisite exhibition of selected CSR works, shown for the first time in Australia, putting us on the national arts industry map!
Through The Lense
Ngayunpala Kujungka (we are one)
Through the Lens presents Ngayunpala kujungka - a photography exhibition by Morika Biljabu. Morika lives in Punmu and has been working on the Canning Stock Route Project's Emerging Multimedia Practitioners Program. The works speak visually of the dynamic life of the western desert, Martumili artists and their families, making paintings, Country and the fun of being part of the CSR Project.
Through the Lens also includes a special multimedia installation of short films and photography captured on the Canning Stock Route journey in 2007. The films provide an insight into the development of the Project as it builds for audiences at the National Museum of Australia in 2010.
