Art Gallery of Western Australia

Art Gallery of Western Australia
Through the Collection, our associated programs, and stimulating exhibitions we offer Gallery visitors unique and exciting experiences of historic and contemporary Australian artists, and bring the art of the world to Western Australia.

We place particular emphasis on the arts of Australia, and due to our geographic position, the Indian Ocean Rim. Our proximity and access to many of the most exciting cultures of the world adds immeasurably to programs, exhibitions, collections and events at the State Art Gallery. Visit our Gallery and watch this site as we build for the future.

The Art Gallery of Western Australia, founded in 1895, occupies a precinct of three heritage buildings on the south-eastern corner of the Perth Cultural Centre. The Gallery houses the State Art Collection, which includes one of the worldâs finest collections of Indigenous art, the pre-eminent collection of Western Australian art and design, as well as Australian and International art and design.
