22 April - 27 July 2015

Abdul-Rahman Abdullah and Abdul Abdullah

A new annual program dedicated to displaying the work of Western Australian artists, WA Focus showcases recent and new work by local artists, selected to represent a mix of gender, experience and medium.

AGWA will work closely with Western Australian artists and the art community to present exhibitions that display the range and depth of our state’s creative talent.

The space debuts with Abdul-Rahman Abdullah’s sculptures and installations and Abdul Abdullah’s interdisciplinary work. The brothers, who often collaborate, will explore themes of cultural identity, memory and narrative.
