Quiddity: noun. the true nature of a thing or its essence.

Featuring artists who work out of DADAA’s studios in Midland, Lancelin, and Fremantle, Quiddity explores differing ideas of portraiture. Each artist has gone beyond simply depicting their subject’s physical likeness, instead aiming to capture the essence of their subject using a variety of mediums and approaches.

This exhibition is a continuation of the annual In Focus exhibition program at Midland Junction Arts Centre. For the past decade, this program has given artists from DADAA’s studios the opportunity to participate in exhibitions, workshops, and performances. In Focus has at its heart the social values of identity and disability, expressed through the telling of individual perspectives, stories, and experiences.

Exhibition runs: 7 May – 16 July 2022
Gallery open: Wednesday – Friday 10AM – 5PM | Sat 11am – 3pm
