18:10 - EXHIBITION OPENING - Stockyards and Saddles: A Story of Gibb River Station : Presented by the Berndt Museum Website | More Information
Join us for the opening of Stockyards and Saddles: A Story of Gibb River Station presented by the Berndt Museum at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery.

The exhibition explores the lives of those living and working on the remote cattle station of Gibb River in the East Kimberley region from the early 1900s until the 1990s.

The importance of photographs as historical memorabilia often goes beyond the people represented in the images to depict a period in our country’s history. As the last generation of cattlemen recall distant memories of dusty stockyards, saddle sheds, wet seasons, and those who passed before them, this exhibition celebrates their lives through the photographic image.

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Black Bodies, White Gold: cotton, art and the materiality of race Website | More Information
A public lecture by Anna Arabindan-Kesson, Assistant Professor of Black Diasporic Art, Princeton University.

This talk examines the visual relationship between the cotton trade and the representation of blackness in American culture, using historical case studies and contemporary art. Juxtaposing contemporary interventions with historical moments, it examines how cotton materially influenced the way black Americans were seen, and represented themselves, as both enslaved and free. It argues that tracing this relationship deepens our understanding of the intersections of vision, value and subjectivity in the production of racial identity in nineteenth-century America, and also today.
