Exhibition: How Did I Get Here?

Past Event


How Did I Get Here?, the first capsule exhibition of works from the Art Gallery of WA’s (AGWA) State Art Collection, opens at 6pm on Friday 12th April at the Katanning Gallery as part of the Freighting Ideas state-wide initiative.

Inspired by the 1980 Talking Heads song Once in a Lifetime, the first regional touring exhibition from Art Gallery of WA for 20 years, How Did I Get Here? brings together twelve key video and photographic works by seven Australian contemporary artists from the State Art Collection presented alongside a series of works from the Shire of Katanning's collection.

The exhibition invites audiences to explore how the works came to be and contemplate how their relationships and environments define their sense of self. Featuring works by leading contemporary photographers in the State Art Collection: Tony Albert (QLD), Michael Cook (WA), Petrina Hicks (NSW), David Rosetzky (VIC), Graham Miller (WA), Toni Wilkinson (WA), and Anne Zahalka (NSW).

Freighting Ideas by ART ON THE MOVE and the Art Gallery of WA involves the local community in developing arts activities and participating in broader conversations around art, alongside the exhibition.

Join us for a morning of public programs Saturday 13 April 9am – 11:30am.
