An exhibition by Dianne Jones, Tour is the culmination of the 2017 Parliament of Western Australia and Edith Cowan University Artist-in-Residence Programme. Now in its second year, this affiliation and residency provides uniquely engaging opportunities in art, historical, cultural and political contexts.
The selected artist is encouraged to examine aspects of Western Australian politics and culture and develop their research into a body of work in any visual arts genre. A Noongar artist from the Ballardong area, Jones connected the ‘broader stories of governance and policy to stories of [her] ancestors’, applying a ‘decolonising’ filter to photographs that ultimately question and realign historical representations.
Exploratory and intellectually rigorous, Jones’ work offers an incisive critique about the inherent bias in colonial and contemporary cultural discourse. The exhibition will also feature key older artworks that showcase the development of a compelling and nationally significant body of work by an important and highly respected artist.
