This Friday, 30 November, Heathcote Museum and Gallery invites the community to look back on the last ten years of works featured in the significant exhibition program TILT, developed in support of local art practice, inquiry and arts practitioners.
2008-2018 Artists; Olga Circonis, Caitlin Yardley, Paul Caporn, Tom Muller, Eva Fernandez, Holly Story, Merrick Beylea, Andy Quilty, Jon Tarry and Sandra Hill have taken on the responsibility of working within the parameters of the Tilt program and each of them grasped the history of this land and tilted it this way and that, to find a different perspective to explore.
From the very beginning in 2008 with Olga Cironis Tilt exhibition Cover Up which explored the love, loss and hidden memory that hangs heavy in the air at Kooyagoordup-Point Heathcote, through to the most recent Tilt in 2017 by Sandra Hill Goolyagadup–Kal-ya-gul, which delved into the difficult aspects of pre-colonisation and first contact, Tilt has earned its place in the Western Australian art and museum program calendars.
The 2018 retrospective has resulted in the task of collating this significant body of past responses into one exhibition. Each of these artists has had and continues to have, significant careers and contributions to contemporary Western Australian art. Each in turn has lifted to the light the history of this significant site to be examined and explored through their chosen media.
The exhibition will officially open on Friday, 30 November 2018 at 6.00pm.
The exhibition runs from Saturday, 1 December 2018 to Sunday, 20 January 2019 at Heathcote Museum & Gallery, Heathcote Cultural Centre, 58 Swan House, Duncraig Road, Applecross. The opening hours are Tuesday to Friday 10.00am to 3.00pm, Saturday and Sunday 12noon to 4.00pm.
