Presented in association with Fremantle Arts Centre and in collaboration with Mangkaja Arts

All Mixed Up is a major solo exhibition featuring newly commissioned work from John Prince Siddon. Siddon draws on contemporary politics, social issues and personal experiences to present a kaleidoscopic vision of Australia. A Walmajarri man living and working from Fitzroy Crossing in the West Kimberley, he combines diverse influences drawn from television and the traditional Kimberley craft of boab nut carving, desert iconography and the epic characters of the Narrangkarni (Dreamtime) to create uncanny technicolour vignettes.

All Mixed Up is complimented by a selection of paintings made in the 1990s by Butcher Cherel Janangoo, a key elder of the Gooniyandi language group instrumental in the retention of men’s law ceremony at Muludja Community. This vibrant pairing offers a glimpse of the rich variety of cultures clustered around Fitzroy Crossing’s Mangkaja Art Centre.

All Mixed Up is curated by Emilia Galatis. Janangoo is curated by Lynley Nargoordah.
