How Did I Get Here?

About this exhibition
How Did I Get Here? is the first capsule exhibition from the Art Gallery of WA (AGWA) State Art Collection featuring video and photographic works by seven Australian contemporary artists. These works will be interwoven with complementary pieces from the local art collections; asking the question ‘How Did I Get Here?’ inviting audiences to contemplate how their relationships and environments define their sense of self.
ART ON THE MOVE and AGWA have come together for the Regional Exhibition Touring Boost (RETB), funded by the State Government, to develop a new WA regional touring program called Freighting Ideas. This collaborative touring model challenges traditional touring processes and aims to develop genuine relationships, meaningful encounters, community connections and the contribution of many different voices.
Famous Sharron, famous for nothing at all, is the Freighting Ideas Audience Ambassador and will connect audiences and the touring exhibitions. She will reach out with her unique Shazzisms, through direct engagement, provocations, a book launch and site-specific activations.
