2020 Partnership Exhibition Project

16-26 September, 12pm-5pm | Schenberg Room, Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery


Explore artworks created by local secondary students in response to the 2020 Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery exhibitions The Long Kiss Goodbye, produced in association with Perth Festival, and Expressions of India, a digital exhibition showcasing artworks from the Berndt Museum of Anthropology collection. 

The 2020 Partnership Exhibition Project is the result of a collaboration between LWAG, the UWA Graduate School of Education (GSE) and secondary students from four schools: Corpus Christi College, St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls, All Saints' College and John Curtin College of the Arts. Guided by their art teachers, students researched concepts from these exhibitions and produced artworks for this exhibition. 

The Academic Program at LWAG includes initiating and developing collaborative art-based projects that promote opportunities for partnerships between LWAG, University departments and WA schools and colleges. These initiatives support and extend innovations in learning together with social and cultural development. 

Special thanks to Erin Knight of the GSE and the teaching staff for their support for this pilot partnership program: Louise Elscot, All Saints’ College, Lisa Young, St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls, Shaaron du Bignon, John Curtin College of the Arts, and Gaby Fabris, Corpus Christi College.
