Wednesday, 21 November 2012

Key Dates:

24 November 2012 - 30 June 2013(Exhibition open)

The Art Gallery of Western Australia has announced the opening of "Made to Remember", the next installment of "Collection in Focus" – a series of rotating displays drawn from the State Art Collection. Each display provides an in-depth exploration of a distinct area within the Collection.

"Made to Remember" is a beautifully considered display of significant Indigenous objects from the State Art Collection. With a diverse selection of works including glass and ceramic objects, textiles and clothing, as well as examples of traditional sculpture, "Made to Remember" encourages dialogue about the place of an object not only in Indigenous art and culture, but in the broader Australian context.

The State Art Collection is an incredible resource, evident in the diversity and unique nature of each of the 48 objects in Made to Remember, which reflect current art practice in the wider Indigenous community.

Further information on "Made to Remember" and "Collection in Focus" can be found on the Art Gallery of Western Australia website.
