Our story is not one story, but many stories to share.

This exhibition attempts to showcase works of art that reflect the depth of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture, with other aspects of the Aboriginal condition.

As a result, radical observations about the ups and downs of life will, at times, weave in and out of stories about Country.

Equally, across this State Art Collection show, visitors will encounter passages of serenity, corridors of tradition, and trails that speak to the upheavals experienced by generations of Indigenous people.

Balancing Act features the work of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists living and working across the State and Australia. Works of art by local Noongar artists such as Revel Cooper (dec.), Sandra Hill and Shane Pickett (dec.) sit loud-and-proud among those by Mr May (Ngarralja Tommy), Richard Bell, Karla Dickens and Julie Dowling to name a few of the many stellar artists in the show.
