AGWA Contemporary

Contemporary art encounters await across four galleries. Start your visit with a walk through the main contemporary gallery, presenting works from 1970 to today. Experience sound works in Rise Sound Gallery, filmic works in Screen Space, and contemporary craft and design in AGWA Design.

The main gallery, AGWA Contemporary, presents works from the 1970s to now. This selective sampling of mainly Australian, and some international works, captures shifts of focus in art practice over the course of five decades, spanning this century and the last. Arranged in loose  chronological and thematic groupings, these works show that contemporary art defies easy definitions or uniform organising conventions and is shaped by diverse influences, both local and global.
