WA Now - Julie Dowling - Babanyu (Friends For Life)

3 February - 20 August 2018 Perth Cultural Centre

The exhibition takes a step back in time to a period (1993–2005) when First Nation Badimaya artist, Julie Dowling, emerged as one of the most important artists in Western Australia and the country.

In this period, the real-life stories she shared about First Nations peoples’ experience in this country were abrupt, brutal and challenging. Many of the stories she shared were, and still are, largely unknown or acknowledged in mainstream Australian society.

In her words, culture and language are ‘Babanyu’ – friends for life.
