Event description
Join Curator Chris Malcolm for a guided tour of the Herbert Mayer Collection of Carrolup Artwork.

About this Event

Curtin University has launched an ambitious campaign to create a new permanent home for The Herbert Mayer Collection of Carrolup Artworks – a collection of rare artworks created by Aboriginal children of Australia’s Stolen Generations who were forcibly detained at the Carrolup Native Settlement in the 1940s near Katanning, Western Australia.

To commemorate the launch of the campaign, the JCG presents Koorliny Mia Whadjuk Boodja (Carrolup Artworks Back Home), an exhibition of the original 1940s Carrolup artworks that speak powerfully of the steadfast resilience of Aboriginal people and their culture as well as their deep, spiritual connection to Country.

Join Curator Chris Malcolm for a guided tour of this comprehensive exhibition, which features the Herbert Mayer Collection of Carrolup Artwork as well as new Carrolup works donated to the Curtin University Art Collection.

If you have any special requirements to enable you to visit the John Curtin Gallery or participate in our events, please advise when you RSVP or phone 9266 4155.
