There is a Fremantle Art Collection, with more than 1400 items. It began with the Claude Hotchin bequest in 1958, had its own home in Pioneer Park 1978-87, but since then has shown (if it has at all) at the Fremantle Arts Centre (at the former Asylum), under the direction of curator André Lipscombe. Very little of it is usually on show, and often none at all. At the time of writing, there has been not a single work in the Collection on show from the beginning of December 2017 to the end of January 2018. This series of photos shows the experience of approaching and entering the room at the FAC which is meant to be dedicated to the Fremantle Art Collection.
