Anne Frank Travelling Exhibition

The travelling exhibition - ‘Let Me Be Myself, the Life Story of Anne Frank’ was compiled in Amsterdam, and tells the personal story of Anne Frank in the historical context of her time. The exhibition also specifically highlights the relevance of her story in contemporary society, particularly in relation to prejudice, discrimination, and exclusion. The exhibition is supported by a 25 minute video, displays including a booklet about the rise of the Nazism, a yellow six-pointed star which Jewish people were forced to wear, model of the Frank family’s hiding place and a replica of the original hand-written diary Anne received on her 13th birthday.

Escape from Pompeii: the Untold Roman Rescue

A new international exhibition Escape from Pompeii: the Untold Roman Rescue reveals the story of the dramatic rescue attempt following one of history’s most devastating natural disasters – the eruption of Mt Vesuvius and the destruction of Pompeii in 79 AD. While many know of the tragic eruption that buried the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, very few know that the Roman Navy attempted to evacuate people affected by the eruption or of the navy’s important role in the success of the Roman Empire. The exhibition features rare artefacts from Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Bay of Naples in a breath-taking display which will include precious gold and jewellery, every-day household objects, as well as five haunting body casts of victims of the eruption, capturing their final moments. It also draws on the collections of leading Italian institutions to tell the fascinating story of the Roman Navy, which dominated the Mediterranean, as no other force has ever done. Developed in association with the Australian National Maritime Museum, Expona and Contemporanea Progetti, Escape from Pompeii: the Untold Roman Rescue will open at the WA Maritime Museum on 22 September 2017. WA Maritime Museum has prepared special events and premiere activities, as well as exciting school holiday activities to suit the most curious, playful and reflective museum visitors.   Book your tickets now!  Pricing Adults $20.00 Concession* $15.00 Child 5-15     $12.50 Child 4 and under   Free Family^          $60.00 * Concession applies to students, seniors and health care card holders. ^ Two adults and two children, or one adult and three children.  # EscapeFromPompeii

Doing One Thing At A Time

Doing One Thing at a Time is a performance and installation, occurring and displayed within The 1897 Window Gallery. Over two months Fiz Eustance will spend an hour or more every day within the gallery space (which will be set up as a studio), crocheting. When Fiz is not within the gallery the space will be on display in its studio form, and viewers will be able to watch as the crocheted object gradually evolves. This work is an attempt to spend time consciously, to escape from the idea that we must multitask in order to be productive, and to sit and make without distraction.  Fiz Eustance is an artist living and working in Fremantle, Western Australia. She is interested in creating art that is personal, poignant, and relevant to the people in her community - Art that encourages meditation on time, emotions, and interpersonal connections/disconnections.
