Is contemporary art a mystery to you? New ideas, new materials, new locations and new attitudes about what is art, can be dazzling and sometimes challenging.
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.
There is nothing like a personal interaction to spark the imagination, especially when Contemporary Art challenges our understanding. Our Voluntary Gallery Guides can offer insight into the artist, the artwork and the spirit of the times in which it was conceived.
We are revitalising the Gallery spaces. Over the coming months some of our gallery spaces will be closed. The format and scope of content for some of AGWA’s guided tours will therefore be adapted to suit these changes. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding during this time. Please ask our team at the front desk for more information.
