The Canberra Times reviews a recent workshop on the Canning Stock Route:
Last week, artists and curators from Western Australia joined Canberra-based academics to workshop an exhibition on the stock route’s indigenous history. The exhibition is scheduled to open in 2010 at the National Museum.
Project manager Carly Davenport Acker, of FORM, the organisation behind the endeavour, said the exhibition would incorporate a variety of artworks, photographs and multimedia exhibits.
”We’re going to be developing a show that’s quite different and has never been done before. We have so much social and cultural context and so much amazing art,” she said.
Eighty-nine artists from nine Western Australia art centres have contributed works.
