$2 million for new external art commission
Call for submissions opens during January 2022. Register your interest now.
The State Government is providing $2 million for the commission of a new external artwork designed to enliven The Art Gallery of Western Australia’s main entrance.
The commission is to create a world-class, contemporary work of art that responds to, engages with, and complements the Gallery’s iconic Brutalist main building.
The selected work of art will become part of the State Art Collection, contributing to the continued revitalisation of the Gallery, providing a visual landmark and artistic accompaniment, attracting visitors to the Gallery and the wider Perth Cultural Centre.
It is envisaged that the work will improve the visual recognition of AGWA, be ambitious in scope and of significant contemporary relevance, creatively engaging with its surroundings and complement the existing fabric of the State Art Gallery.
The international artist callout for submissions will open during January 2022. A full artist submission pack will be available at this time. If you would like to receive an artist submission pack, please register your details below.
