Off The Beaten Track
Japinka Gallery, Fremantle, WA
April 8th - May 19th 2022.
Five emerging and established painters from Arlpwe Art and Culture come together for a survey exhibition at Japinka Gallery in Fremantle's historic west end.
‘I think there’s a bit of an Ali Curung renaissance taking place’ says Arts Manager Levi McLean. ‘It’s not a place that’s well known for painting, although there has been a history of exceptional carvers in the past. I don’t think the painting has really been on the radar until now. I think that is about to change. The work is beautiful, fresh, and profound, and it’s wonderful that Japingka can share that with a global audience. It’s a really exciting time.’
