A lasting legacy to the cultural and social impact left by the Fremantle Biennale, the book is an illustrated monograph that speaks to the theme of CROSSING 21.
Contextualising Walyalup’s (Fremantle’s) deep history and the subsequent layering of colonial and contemporary narratives, the book will hold a collection of essays, reflections, poem and correspondences, illustrated by the works of contemporary artists, writers, community leaders and Whadjuk Noongar Traditional Owners.
Crossings Bilya Bidi is itself a love letter, a site-responsive and a heartfelt attempt to speak back to place.
Crossings Bilya Bidi will be available for sale from November 2021.
Edited by Dr Kelsey Ashe, Sandra Harben, Grant Revell and Tom Mùller, with contributions by Tyson Yunkaporta, Clothilde Bullen, Grant Revell & Len Collard, Dr Cassie Lynch, Ted Snell and Julian Tompkin.
