Please join  Art Collective WA for the opening of Miriam Stannage Territories on Saturday 27 May, 2-4pm. 

Territories reveals the extent to which Miriam Stannage continued to contravene the ‘rules’ of art throughout her practice.

This exhibition, the second of her work at Art Collective WA, recognises the important contribution made by Miriam Stannage to Australian art. Territories celebrates both the transgressive nature of her art, and her engagement with the relationship between place and identity. The works speak of borders, of realms beyond our physical, of transition from one state to another.Over her 50-year practice, Miriam produced works across the genres of installation, photography, painting, video, prints and drawings, and artist’s books. Miriam also taught art and was a founding member of the Contemporary Art Society (CAS).In 1998, Miriam was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from Curtin University and, in 2015, she was honoured as a ‘State Living Treasure’ by the Department of Culture and the Arts for her contribution to our society as an artist and mentor. Her works can be found in all the major Australian collections.

This exhibition has been organised with the support of the artist’s estate and curated by Lee Kinsella.

MIRIAM STANNAGE ‘Territories’ is open at Art Collective WA’s gallery from 27 May – 17 June 2017. All works are for sale.
