Raised by Wolves

10 February 2007 - 17 June 2007

Special Exhibitions Gallery

Raised by Wolves was the Art Gallery of Western Australia's creative response to the theme of the 2007 UWA Perth International Arts Festival, the Human Family.


The exhibition explored various alternative/non-traditional family structures as well as the emotional and social consequences of the nuclear family itself. Participating artists explored notions associated with alternative models of being and relating and charted the enticing possibilities and frightening realities of living outside mainstream society.

This challenging and complex exhibition brought together historical, contemporary and Indigenous works on paper, sculpture, paintings, film and installation.

Raised by Wolves' engaging and stimulating environment provided parents with a unique opportunity to discuss and examine the Human Family with their children, as well as confront the roles and expectations these children face in today’s world.



This exhibition was developed and produced with support from the UWA Perth International Arts Festival
