Established in 1895, the Art Gallery of Western Australia (AGWA) resides in the heart of the Perth Cultural Centre, occupying a precinct of three heritage buildings.
As one of Perth’s cultural icons, we provide a hub for visual arts in WA, showcasing local Australian artists alongside international counterparts, to stimulate ideas and encourage conversation.
AGWA is home to the highly-regarded State Art Collection, which holds one of the world’s finest collections of Indigenous and pre-eminent Western Australian art and design, as well as other diverse exhibitions and displays that invite our visitors to see things differently.
Our range of interactive projects include public programs, artist talks, panel discussions and education resources.
AGWA's 2019 exhibition program will launch with a large-scale exhibition in celebration of the culmination of the six-year Desert River Sea: Kimberley Art Then and Now visual arts research project led by the Art Gallery of WA, with support from Rio Tinto Communities.
Over 150 works from the Kimberley will feature in this exhibition, including works developed by six major art centres and three independant artists in the final year of the project. The exhibition will give a rare experience of the land, artists and art of the Kimberley.
Open Wednesday to Monday from 10am – 5pm, with the exception of Tuesdays, Good Friday, Anzac Day and Christmas Day.
