About the Show
Opening Night: The Long Kiss Goodbye + Boomerang
Join us for the opening of Season 1 with two new exhibitions: The Long Kiss Goodbye + Boomerang – A National Symbol.
THE LONG KISS GOODBYE
The Long Kiss Goodbye explores how artists transform familiar materials and symbols into complex meditations on love, loss, attraction and repulsion.
It features a group of artists from around the nation, each with a unique connection to Western Australia.
Sarah Contos (NSW) | Penny Coss (WA) | Iain Dean (WA) | Michele Elliot with Tender Funerals (NSW) | Brent Harris (VIC) | Clare Peake (NT)
Presented in association with Perth Festival.
BOOMERANG – A NATIONAL SYMBOL
Australia as a nation is recognised around the world by symbols of Aboriginal culture.
In this exhibition, the Berndt Museum explores the idea of the boomerang – beyond a symbol of ‘Australia’ – to highlight its many uses and meanings. The exhibition asks audiences: ‘How much do you know about boomerangs?’
Presented by the Berndt Museum of Anthropology.
FRIDAY 7 FEBRUARY, 6 – 8PM
