art above the 26th is an exhibition of new works by established artists who live and work above the 26th parallel.
While the 26th latitude line defines the geographic edge of ‘the north’ of Australia, it also comes with a certain attitude; a creative and adventurous grit that has its own character and vernacular. Artists in the Kimberley and beyond are vibrant, diverse and wildly creative. art above the 26th celebrates this spirit.
KAN and the Shire of Broome present art above the 26th to explore the landscapes, character, heritage, culture and light of the north. KAN is excited to showcase the styles, stories and talent of our northern artists.
The exhibition will be at the Broome Civic Centre during Broome Race Week (8 -15 August) and will present a broad cross-section of artists and their works from across the northern region. The soiree on Monday 8th August is open to the public .
