BlakLight - First Nations Art Takes Over AGWA

Every wall, every floor, every channel.

In an Australian State Gallery first, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art takes the entire stage at AGWA, during BlakLight, a month-long program celebrating the diversity of First Nations art and culture.

BlakLight will see every gallery space at AGWA dedicated to Australia's most significant contemporary art form – showcasing the diversity and complexity of First Nations art. Accompanying this gallery-wide focus is an event program sparking conversation about cultural identities and exploring the notion of community through visual art, music, talks and more. Professional development workshops for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists based in Perth also feature in the program.

AGWA is closed until 16 October for a final stage of redevelopment works. Details
