Desert River Sea: Portraits of the Kimberley is the highly anticipated culmination of the Art Gallery of WA's six-year Kimberley visual arts project, Desert River Sea: Kimberley Art Then and Now. This landmark exhibition showcasing the vibrant and contemporary creative talent of Kimberley artists opens with a cultural celebration on 9 February 2019. New works from six Kimberley art centres and three independent artists will be presented alongside a selection of legacy works from art centre collections. Together with works from AGWA's collection, the exhibition offers a rare experience of the land, artists and art of the Kimberley. To accompany the exhibition, UWA Publishing has produced a breathtaking book outlining and tracking the development of the project and using extraordinary artworks to close the circle of the six years of Kimberley work.
