With 42 artists showcasing their work in Revealed for the first time, this year’s exhibition boasts the largest number of emerging artists in the event’s 16-year history.

Revealed is a major event on the WA arts and culture calendar, having generated more than $4 million for the more than 1000 WA First Nations artists whose work has been showcased since 2008.

The Revealed: WA Aboriginal Art Market on Saturday 11 May will give enthusiasts and budding collectors alike the opportunity to buy artwork through a direct and ethical channel, with 30 stalls set to line the front lawn of the Fremantle Arts Centre.

The participating artists were selected by a panel of industry experts representing many of WA’s regions, First Nations groups and cultural institutions. Works span a wide range of artistic media and Western Australia’s remote and regional, and metropolitan areas.

This year marks the first time that the initiative will be managed by a First Nations organisation. The Aboriginal Art Centre Hub of Western Australia (AACHWA) will bring strong cultural governance to Revealed through an agreement with the State Government to deliver the exhibition and market over the next three years.

Revealed is an initiative supported by the State Government through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Australian Government through the Indigenous Visual Arts Industry Support program.

The Government is committed to protecting the intellectual property of our First Nations artists while helping them access markets of potential buyers.

Revealed is a great opportunity to see some of the diverse and wonderful art produced by WA’s First Nations artists.
