15 July to 27 August 2017 Main Gallery

This exhibition represents one of the few opportunities students have to view work by a key artist in the visual arts curriculum at senior level. Moffatt’s photo-series and films will be used by students in case studies, essays and the study of Post-Modernism and the Conceptual Framework in the curriculum.

Montages: The Full Cut 1999-2015 by eminent Australian artist Tracey Moffatt and her collaborator Gary Hillberg, brings together all eight of the artist’s seminal film montages, completed over 16 years from 1999 to 2015.

In 2017, Tracey Moffatt will become the first indigenous Australian artist to present a solo exhibition at the Venice Biennale.

Exhibited together for the first time the exhibition will no doubt delight and inspire audiences with its uniquely accessible mash-ups of Hollywood cinema.

A RETROSPECTIVE OF PAINTINGS 1997-2017

More recent paintings of the Swan River and surrounding land as Whadjuk country, before English settlement in 1829, acknowledge Whadjuk traditional ownership and skilled land management on a vast scale. Alan is a renowned and unique artist, who will be presenting 60 paintings that have been inspired by Perth, the Swan River and its ancient history.

16 September to 18 October 2017 Main Gallery Known for his highly detailed and intricate paintings in acrylic, Alan’s work depicts aspects of coastal suburban living, often in a humorous way. The great urban expansion of Perth, the annual rubbish collection, graffiti, car burnouts and the burning of untrimmed palm trees are just some of a range of local themes.

LET ME BE MYSELF

ANNE FRANK TRAVELLING EXHIBITION

The personal story of Anne Frank is complemented by photographs and texts about the time in which she lived: the rise of the national socialists, the persecution of Jewish people and WWII.

10 November to 22 December 2017 Main Gallery An exhibition that thoughtfully educates young people to explore the issue of discrimination.

The historical panels are presented in a chronological order, which allows visitors to easily connect the developments in Nazi Germany with the life of the Frank family.

In 2015, Anne Frank House introduced a new generation of travelling exhibitions: Let Me Be Myself - The Life Story of Anne Frank. This thought provoking exhibition tells the story of Anne Frank and the historical context of her time it specifically highlights the contemporary relevance of her story.

The second part of the exhibition centres on contemporary subjects. Five colourful modules contemporise the story of Anne Frank, showing how it is still relevant in today’s society. With discrimination still taking place on a daily basis all over the world, the youngsters who are shown in the exhibition speak about themselves and how they deal with today’s prejudices and discrimination. The contemporary part of the exhibition is complemented by two short films.

The first part of the exhibition focuses on the story of Anne Frank. Large pictures are used to give an impression of her life, from her birth in Frankfurt in 1929 to her death in Bergen-Belsen in 1945.

PAPER MOUNTAIN SPECIAL PARTNERSHIP

CITY OF WANNEROO GALLERIES

Paper Mountain and the City of Wanneroo Gallery are partnering to bring two special exhibitions by emerging visual artists in 2017.

The Wanneroo Cultural Centre has two state-of-the-art gallery spaces that can be used individually or together for complementary activities. Both spaces are climate controlled and equipped with high specification lighting.

This partnership allows us to bring a handful of Perth’s best young artists to the City of Wanneroo Gallery, providing opportunities to showcase new contemporary works and helping art become more accessible in Perth’s lively north west corridor.

The gallery is a large exhibition space at 376m2 with beautiful views of Wanneroo to Lake Joondalup. This space is perfect for hosting exhibitions, conferences and corporate presentations.

Paper Mountain is an artist-run initiative with a gallery, co-working space and artist studios located in Perth's CBD.

The conference room is the smaller exhibition space at 109m2 and is an elliptical shape with stunning floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Great Court, making it an impressive intimate exhibition choice. This room lends itself well to conferences, audio-visual presentations, product launches and workshops.

They are dedicated to supporting a diverse range of contemporary art projects and aim to promote experimentation, collaboration, and artistic excellence among Perth’s creative community.
