In Cahoots: Artists Collaborate Across Country
4 December 2021 – 20 February 2022
Almost two years in the making and spanning the nation, In Cahoots celebrates the unique and energised artistic works that emerge when artists collaborate across cultures. The exhibition is the result of six residencies with remote and regional Aboriginal arts centres, undertaken by independent Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists from across Australia. Featuring sculptural works, installations and films drawing together the ideas of artists from diverse backgrounds, In Cahoots presents these fascinating, potent collaborations happening across Country today.
In Cahoots is proudly presented by Fremantle Arts Centre, in partnership with Baluk Arts (Mornington Peninsula, Victoria) Buku-Larranggay Mulka Art Centre (Arnhem Land, Northern Territory), Mangkaja Arts (the Kimberley, Western Australia), Martumili Artists (Newman, Western Australia), Papulankutja Artists (Central Desert, Western Australia) and Warakurna Artists, (Central Desert, Western Australia) with principle support from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries through its Future Focus program.
