There's an exciting transformation underway at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
To accommodate AGWA's redevelopment works, visitor access is from the Beaufort Street entrance with Pulse Perspectives on display in the Centenary Galleries. All other gallery spaces remain closed until the redevelopment works are complete. The AGWA Shop is only available online during this period.
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, they 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 visitors to see things differently.
The range of interactive projects include public programs, artist talks, panel discussions and education resources.
In 2020 the Gallery celebrated 125 years.
Open Wednesday to Monday from 10am – 5pm, with the exception of Tuesdays, Good Friday, Anzac Day and Christmas Day.
