Carrolup Revisited: A Journey through the South West of Western Australia

9 February - 29 June 2019

Carrolup Revisited: A Journey through the South West of Western Australia celebrates the artists well-known for their role in the Carrolup School of Art.

Today, this small group of children are remembered for their distinctive representational drawings in pastel. As members of the Stolen Generations, removed from their families and relocated to the Carrolup Native Settlement without warning, they lived in isolation from the world.

These small works on paper, speak to their strength and willingness to survive, and is a reminder of the fortitude of Aboriginal people in the harshest of circumstances to create and imagine new worlds.
