Desert River Sea
 

The Art Gallery of Western Australia with funding support from the Rio Tinto Community Investment Fund is pleased to present Desert River Sea: Kimberley Art Then & Now, an exciting and unique six year visual art project developed in close dialogue and consultation with Indigenous artists throughout the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Its outcomes will be threefold: the development of this continually evolving website, an exhibition and an emerging leaders program.

The Desert River Sea website will become a place where people from all over the world can learn more about the Kimberley, its creative hubs, its language groups, its history and its people. Updated regularly, it will grow into a compelling resource for all those seeking inspiration from, and information about, Kimberley art.

Its outcomes will be threefold: the development of desertriversea.com.au, an exhibition and an emerging leaders program.


desertriversea.com.au celebrates the art of the Kimberley region, its rich Indigenous cultures, its dynamic and breathtaking landscape and the cultural narratives which tell of its creation, its custodians and the peoples who call this country home. Over 500 artworks are displayed digitally and this is continually growing.
