ORIENTing: Ian Fairweather in Western Australian Collections and With or Without You
Companion book to the exhibition ORIENTing at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery. Including full-colour plates of all the works together with essays written by leading scholars and authors.
ORIENTing is an exhibition in two parts, each exploring a different aspect of artistic engagement with Asia.
The exhibition considers the work of Ian Fairweather and his relationship with Asia, investigating the artist's unique positioning in Australian art history and his commitment to cross-cultural engagement. Using Fairweather as a springboard Aaron Seeto will explore the current re-positioning being undertaken by contemporary Australian/Asian artists as they reflect upon and engage with the rich cultural environment to our north.
