All Events

Everyone has a history - Part One: Plain Speak at the Art Gallery of WA from 25 February - 13 August 2017. Some artists just have to speak. Some stories need to be told.

Plain Speak launches a new annual series at AGWA, Everyone has a history, presenting compelling personal stories told through art. Exclusive to PIAF, the inaugural show puts Indigenous artists in the spotlight. Featuring 50 powerfully personal works, presented through a range of media; including video work, paintings, photography, sculpture and textiles.

These are personal stories that demand to be told. Whether it’s a grand tale or something intimate as a diary, these are stories and histories that will provoke a response and resonate with the audience. Artists include; Vernon Ah Kee, Tony Albert, Michael Cook, Brenda L. Croft, Sandra Hill, Lesley Murray and Christopher Pease. Find out more.
