Desert River Sea: Portraits of the Kimberley

Desert River Sea: Portraits of the Kimberley is the highly anticipated culmination of the Art Gallery of WA’s six-year Kimberley visual arts project, supported by Rio Tinto. This landmark exhibition showcasing the vibrant and contemporary creative talent of Kimberley artists opens with a cultural celebration on 9 February 2019. New works from six Kimberley art centres and three independent artists will be presented alongside a selection of legacy works from art centre collections. Together with works from AGWA’s collection, the exhibition offers a rare experience of the land, artists and art of the Kimberley.

Artists and art centres also represented in the Desert River Sea exhibition include: Darrell & Garry Sibosado (Lombadina); Daniel Walbidi (Bidyadanga); Kira Kiro Art Centre (Kalumburu) and artist collectives from Mangkaja Arts Resource Agency (Fitzroy Crossing); Mowanjum Aboriginal Art & Culture Centre (Mowanjum); Waringarri Aboriginal Arts (Kununurra); Warlayirti Artists (Balgo); and Warmun Art Centre (Warmun).

The exhibition is co-curated by Carly Lane, Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art and Emilia Galatis, Community Liaison & Project Coordinator.
