CoJ Exhibition: New Acquisitions – 22 Jan to 1 Feb 2019

Each year, the City of Joondalup collects exemplars of Western Australian contemporary art through its visual arts program including the staging of the City of Joondalup Community Invitation Art Award as well as directly commissioning artists to produce works in response to their experiences in the City’s environments. New Acquisitions presents five artworks acquired for the City of Joondalup Art Collection in 2018, including Susan Roux’s Wives, which won the acquisitive prize and the People’s Choice Award in the CIAA, and Place of Glistening, a three-panel artwork commissioned from Nien Schwarz that was inspired by the City’s physical geography.
