Tilt is an annual site-responsive exhibition commission presented by the City of Melville and Goolugatup Heathcote. Each year a WA based Artist is invited to respond to the unique natural, built and social history of Goolugatup Heathcote. This area has a history of significance to Aboriginal people and also a recent history as a former mental health hospital.
Emma Buswell is our 2022 Tilt artist. Throughout 2022, Emma will work in-residence at Goolguatup to produce a new body of work that responds to the history and landscape of this important site.
