Alluvial Gold by Erin Coates - Tilt Program

Now in its 12th iteration, Tilt is an annual exhibition inviting an artist to present new artwork in response to the important history and landscape of Goolugatup Heathcote.

Informed by Erin’s residence at Goolugatup Heathcote, Alluvial Gold spans drawing, sculpture and video and examines the changing ecology of the Derbarl Yerrigan/Swan River local river, bringing a visceral drama to the often-forgotten world below the river surface.

14 November 2020 - 14 February 2021
