Mapping Memory curator’s talk

MAPPING MEMORY – an exhibition of family history

Textile artist Wendy Lugg creates paths from the past to the present

Every family has stories to tell, and each story is an important part of our heritage. Wendy Lugg, resident artist with the Royal Western Australian Historical Society, has explored the collections of both the Society and the State Library of Western Australia for stories that resonate with her own family memories.

In the resulting exhibition, Mapping Memory, artifacts, maps, ephemera and documents from these two important heritage collections intermingle with the artist’s memorabilia and artworks in a rich layering of personal family story, collective memory, and the landscape they share.

 This beautiful exhibition runs from 9 April to 10 July 2011.

For further information about the exhibition, a curators talk and tour is being held on Wednesday 13 April from 1.30 – 2.30pm. Call 9427 3111 to book your place.

  1. Wendy Lugg is both the curator and the artist. We may schedule another talk towards the end of the exhibition, depending upon Wendy’s availability.
    If so, it will be posted on the blog and our events page as well.
