Letter, Land, Lore – A visual exploration of the convergence of Jewish mysticism and Indigenous culture

3 August to 26 October

Nikki Green

Nikki Green is an Australian Jewish artist currently based in Denmark, Western Australia, one of the most bio-diverse hotspots on earth. In this new exhibition, Nikki explores the parallels between Jewish mysticism and the Indigenous Australian connection to the land. Her work combines these two seemingly disparate cultures, revealing a relationship between text, nature and spirit and the ensuing organic patterns that emerge from their intimate connections.

Nikki will also be artist-in-residence at the Museum. She will be facilitating a number of exciting visual art workshops throughout August and September. Visitors are welcome to watch Nikki working on her art and chat with her informally about her practice.

Sullied Sublime

2 – 19 October

Saffron Newey
In ‘Sullied Sublime’, Newey summons the greats of Australian landscape painting as appropriated, contemporary visions of the sublime. Von Guerard and Buvelot are celebrated as post colonial masters of painting the Australian landscape, en plein air, yet for Newey, their compositions represent a fluctuous energy.


2 – 19 October

Kieran Boland

23 October – 19 November

Sophia Hewson
This exhibition is an examination of female self-objectification, and the sensation that arises when faith is not found. The works will include a performance work on the opening night of a God un-resurrected, a helium inflated congregation, and six female Saints from the motel rooms of Indonesia.

aXolotl’s Smile

22 October – 9 November

Diego Ramirez
aXolotl’s Smile is an installation observing and reinterpreting axolotl iconography, more specifically, it underscores the manner in which the trope of axolotl anthropomorphism has been translated across different cultures in the fields of arts, literature and pop culture. Indeed, the axolotl is a larval salamander endemic to the lakes of Mexico and has generated a large genealogy of global objects centered on the theme of ‘crossing’.
