Visual Arts

A rich array of visually eloquent responses to the world we live in

Let our visual arts program delight, engage and challenge you.

This year’s program brings to Perth an unprecedented number of artists and artworks in seven exhibitions that are a testament to the importance of artists’ understanding and insight of a world in flux.

Highlights include the first Australian exhibition by acclaimed transgender artist Cassils and a contemporary ceramic exhibition delving into issues around gender and power. Candice Breitz uses Hollywood film stars to expose our conflicted responses to the refugee crisis, while the international Love, Displaced exhibition explores modes of emotional engagement in a media-driven 21st century.  We also celebrate the rich Indigenous culture of the Kimberley region with a major exhibition.

Want to see the whole program? You can join the Festival’s Visual Arts curators on the Art Bus for a whole day visiting each exhibition!
