This is an ART ON THE MOVE and Art Gallery of WA touring program developed as part of Freighting Ideas project.

There Were Moments of Transformation, an exhibition of 40 works from the Art Gallery of Western Australia’s Collection opens on 30 April, 6pm at Geraldton Regional Art Gallery as part of the second instalment of the Freighting Ideas state-wide initiative.

There Were Moments of Transformation explores the power and fragility of transformation through video, jewellery, glass, ceramics and sculpture. Featuring works by international artists including Auguste Rodin, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and William Kentridge alongside local pieces by WA artists such as Lucy Yukenbarri and Bethamy Linton, the exhibition asks you to consider through the creation of these works, how materials change, how they change us, and the world around us.

This project has been made possible through the Regional Exhibition Touring Boost managed by the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries, supported by Royalties for Regions and delivered in partnership by ART ON THE MOVE and the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

There Were Moments of Transformation Opening Night 6-8pm 30 April 2021 RSVP here
