MUSEUM OF WATER - Sat 18 Feb–Sun 5 Mar 2017

What water will you keep?

A vial of tears, melted ice from Antarctica and a plastic bottle of billabong water – every drop tells a story. Choose your water, find something to put it in and tell us why you brought it. PIAF Artist-in-Residence Amy Sharrocks invites you to consider your relationship with the world’s most indispensable liquid as we build the WA edition of the award-winning Museum of Water. Surfing, swimming, desalination, irrigation and thirst – the pleasures and politics of water affect us all.

Set to open in PIAF 2018 before becoming part of the Western Australian Museum’s permanent collection, Museum of Water is a radically different kind of museum.

SIMPSON AND HIS DONKEY - AN EXHIBITION - Feb 02, 2017 - Apr 27, 2017

The delightful illustrations by Frané Lessac help to tell the famous World War 1 story. John Kirkpatrick Simpson and his donkey, Duffy, rescued over 300 men during the World War 1 campaign at Gallipoli. 

The colourful illustrations are in stark contrast with the reality of the events and together with the story, give a deeper understanding of the bravery of Australians at war. This is an exhibition of the original illustrations from the children’s picture book Simpson and his Donkey, by Mark Greenwood, illustrated by Frané Lessac.
