The John Curtin Gallery is delighted to announce its 2020 major exhibitions program. Commencing during Bunuru in February, we are proud to once again partner with the Perth Festival to present comprehensive bodies of work from two of Western Australia’s leading visual artists, Ian Strange and Sandra Hill. In May, during Djeran, we will present the culmination of a two year project involving 13 galleries and museums, 27 curators and more than 200 artists from throughout regional Western Australia. Later in the year, in Djilba, we are excited to unveil the fifty highlights of our 50fifty Acquisition Initiative. We will close the year in Kambarang by continuing our partnership with The Collectors Club of WA to present the finalists of the prestigious John Stringer Prize dedicated to the former curator of the Kerry Stokes Collection, the late John Stringer.
