VISITING SPEAKER: From Convicts to Carrollup: a history of Fremantle Prison art
|From Convicts to Carrollup: a history of Fremantle Prison art : Guest Lecture - Fremantle Prison Curators
In the late 1970s pioneering art teacher Steve Culley transformed the Fremantle Prison art program from traditional watercolour painting into a course where ‘ideas unfold in the mind and lock into the creator’s hands, as each pursues his own style of art.’ (Shackles prison newsletter, Spring 1984). Jimmy Pike developed his unique style as a pupil of Steve Cully’s whilst serving time at Fremantle Prison.
In this evening talk, Fremantle Prison’s curatorial staff will speak about the history of the prison art program at Fremantle and explore the richness and diversity of the Fremantle Prison art collection, which encompasses graffiti, murals, painted furniture, and more traditional works on paper and canvas.
