City of Fremantle Bicentennial Banner
Canvas banner with painted acrylic paint and screen printed elements supported by aluminium poles and fixtures
This banner was commissioned by City of Fremantle for the Australian Bicentennial in 1988. It was produced in two elements and designed for exhibition and public use, to be carried by way of an aluminum beam and poles. The item was accessioned originally in the City of Fremantle Public Art portfolio before being transferred to the City of Fremantle Art Collection for its relevance and significance as an exhibition artwork by two established Fremantle artists.
The banner was produced by textile artist Annette Seeman and painter Jocelyn Gregson, the poles where made by Geoffry Palfryman. The banner depicts Fremantle's built environment. The two artists worked collaboratively to complete the banner in the Fremantle Town Hall which was provided to the artists for the duration of the banner production.
