Insider Art: Summer 2020
Insider Art showcases the creative achievements of incarcerated prisoners from across Western Australia.
Fremantle Prison Exhibition
5 Dec 2020 - 28 Feb 2021
A joint initiative of the Department of Justice and Fremantle Prison, Insider Art exhibitions bring together a collection of artwork from prisoners throughout Western Australia.
Participation in the creative process offers prisoners more than simple education and recreation. The production of artworks can be an important component in their rehabilitation as it allows them space for creativity and personal development. This can help prisoners to reframe their identity in positive ways.
The collection of works exhibited represent a diverse array of traditional and contemporary approaches to art making and include works from traditional Aboriginal artists with 50,000 years of culture to draw upon; those created by prisoners engaged in tertiary courses in contemporary art practice; and everything in between.
Moreover, for many of the artists featured, painting provides a way to connect with family, culture and country by drawing upon a long history of shared visual languages.
Works available for purchase, with proceeds going back to the artists and exhibition program.
