Insider Art provides an insight into life on the inside, through the art created in Western Australia’s prisons
16 Jun - 28 Aug 2018
Insider Art: Winter 2018 showcases the creative achievements of incarcerated prisoners from across Western Australia.
The collection of new works exhibited represents a diverse array of traditional and contemporary approaches to art making.
Across Western Australia participation in creative processes and formal art classes play an important role in rehabilitation, personal development and complement existing educational programs.
Moreover for many of the Aboriginal artists featured painting provides a way to connect with family, culture and country by drawing upon a long history of shared visual languages.
An ongoing initiative between the Department of Justice and Fremantle Prison ensures that entry to this exhibition is free and that many of the works will be available for purchase with proceeds going back to the artists and the exhibition program.
