Expressions of Interest Now Open.
Expressions of Interest from venues interested in hosting RETB ART ON THE MOVE touring exhibition He is Myself: The Art of William Gardiner are now open.
Touring September 2022 through to March 2024.
Born in the years leading up to Australia’s first Aboriginal workers’ strike of 1946-1949, Nyaparu (William) Gardiner (1943-2018) lived, worked and raised a family in the country’s remote north west regions. Engaged in both pastoral life and mining―two industries that have driven the nation’s wealth over the past century―Gardiner experienced firsthand a period of burgeoning Aboriginal political self-determination, through his association with the iconic Pilbara-based ‘Strelley Mob’. He is Myself presents more than 50 artworks created by Gardiner during the last four years of his life at Spinifex Hill Studio in South Hedland, including many previously unseen works.
Curated and produced by FORM, this exhibition offers an exceptional insight into the fascinating life of a man who, through his travels and experiences, embodies an era of unprecedented social and economic change for Western Australia and its Aboriginal peoples.
To submit your expression of interest email your preferred hosting dates to email@example.com by December 13, 2021. This can be specific exhibition opening and closing dates or it can be preferred months, including length of exhibition period.
