A diverse suite of new exhibitions will be opening at BRAG over the coming weeks with something new for all audiences to enjoy.
On Friday 27 October at 6pm, Fundamentally Unstable (3 Sites), A solo show by Perth-based artist Beverley Iles will open to the public. The works in this show have been developed in response to the exploration of contaminated sites, particularly three sites where soil has been contaminated through industrial processes and are listed on the Department of Environment Regulations Contaminated Sites database.
The artworks themselves are playful and accessible - with found objects and bursts of industrial colour they feel humorous, light-hearted and open ended. This playfulness allows viewers to find their own path through the challenging subject matter.
On Friday 2 November at 6pm, The South West Printmakers will return to BRAG for the opening of their annual exhibition.
This year the printmakers have used the theme of narrative to connect their works together and the resulting exhibition Cover Story contains print works using a wide range of techniques that give audiences a glimpse into the personal stories of the artists.
The artists have worked individually in response to this theme and also together on a collaborative print-sharing project, to create the dustcover of their imagined book, inviting each other to enter into the author’s world.
On Friday 17 November at 6pm, BRAG will present works by 2017 visual arts graduates from Edith Cowan University - South West. + Five presents works by Korrine Bennell, Alana Clare, Sam Beard, Rhonda Moore and Bateen, and will give audiences an insight into the journey of five developing artists crossing the threshold from university into the regional arts scene.
It is an exciting moment in the lives of these young artists and all are welcome to come and celebrate their hard work and achievement.
Fundamentally Unstable (3 Sites) 28 October to 3 December.
Cover Story 4 November to 21 January.
+ Five 18 November to 21 January.
BRAG is open 10am to 4pm daily and entry is free.
