Perth Cultural Centre, Roe St, Perth / Yandilup
Through the Collection, associated programs, and stimulating exhibitions, Gallery visitors are offered unique and exciting experiences of historic and contemporary Australian artists, as well as the art of the world.
Emphasis is placed on Western Australian and Australian art, in particular work by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, and due to our geographic position, the Indian Ocean Rim. WA’s 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.
