The latest ‘Insider Art’ exhibition will showcase artwork created by Western Australian prisoners. ‘Insider Art Autumn 2016’ demonstrates the creativity and cultural engagement of the ultimate outsider artists. Artworks will range from Carrolup-inspired landscapes and other regional Aboriginal styles to contemporary art produced by students enrolled in university art courses. These works will challenge preconceptions about the creative abilities of this marginalised group.
Insider Art is a joint initiative between the Department of Corrective Services and the Department of the State Heritage Office (Fremantle Prison).
