FACET AGM & Forum: Tour of 'Unknown Land' Exhibition
Art Gallery of WA & State Library of WA
Monday, 31 October 2016 3.15 - 6.30pm
Join FACET Members on a private tour of the 'Unknown Land' Exhibition at the Art Gallery of WA, followed by the FACET Annual General Meeting.
Experience WA through the eyes of the first European explorers and colonists.
Of course, it was no such thing - Aboriginal people had owned the land for thousands of years and were quickly in conflict with the imperialists.
Whatever their motives - colonist, invader, explorer, settler, adventurer - the Europeans were awestruck by the land we now call Western Australia - and the opportunities it presented.
This exhibition of the earliest water colours, paintings and drawings of WA superbly captures images of iconic locations still familiar, but now mostly transformed.
European artists were the first of many generations to be inspired by the landscape of WA.
The visions are stunning. But the real story, as revealed in the exhibition was much more complex.
