Pioneering Indigenous-Led Showcase, Revealed, Returns to Western Australia

Prepare to be captivated as the esteemed Fremantle Arts Centre once again plays host to the highly anticipated return of Revealed, Western Australia’s foremost annual Aboriginal art exhibition and market, commencing on May 9th. Now entering its 16th year, Revealed promises an immersive experience, boasting a curated selection of over 150 exemplary works from nearly 70 First Nations artists, spanning a rich tapestry of mediums including painting, textiles, photography, sculpture, animation, and beyond.

Of particular note is the debut showcase of 42 emerging talents hailing from Western Australia, a testament to the depth and diversity of indigenous artistic expression within the region. Each artist, meticulously selected by a distinguished panel of industry luminaries comprising Zali Morgan, Stephen Gilchrist, JD Penangke, and Michael Bonner, brings forth a unique blend of cultural heritage and artistic innovation, offering audiences a profound glimpse into indigenous narratives and contemporary perspectives.

Elevating this year’s iteration to unprecedented heights is its historic transition to Indigenous stewardship, marking a monumental milestone in the exhibition’s storied legacy. Under the auspices of the Aboriginal Arts Centre Hub of Western Australia (AACHWA), Revealed embarks on a transformative journey towards authenticity and empowerment, championing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices with unwavering resolve.

Chad Creighton, CEO of AACHWA, underscores the organization’s steadfast commitment to nurturing indigenous creativity, cultural resilience, and equitable practices within the artistic milieu. Through strategic collaborations with Aboriginal art centers statewide, AACHWA ensures that Revealed serves as more than just a platform for artistic expression; it is a catalyst for advocacy, amplifying the aspirations and well-being of indigenous artists and communities alike.

Complementing the exhibition is the eagerly anticipated Revealed Art Market, returning to the fore with 30 meticulously curated stalls showcasing a diverse array of paintings, textiles, jewelry, ceramics, and beyond. With 100% of sales reverting directly to the artists and their respective art centers, the market offers patrons a unique opportunity to engage ethically with indigenous artistry, forging meaningful connections while contributing to the sustainable growth of the sector.

As Western Australia’s cultural landscape continues to evolve, Revealed stands as a beacon of celebration, resilience, and empowerment, enriching the artistic fabric of the region while amplifying indigenous voices on a global stage. Embark on a transformative journey where tradition converges with innovation, as Revealed 2024 invites you to immerse yourself in the vibrant tapestry of Aboriginal artistry, where every stroke tells a story, and every creation resonates with the spirit of cultural heritage.
