State of Abstraction | Guided Tours

Join one of our knowledgeable Voluntary Gallery Guides for a guided tour of State of Abstraction.

There is nothing like a personal interaction to spark the imagination. AGWA Gallery Guides bring the AGWA collection to life with their insights into the work, era and artist in this dedicated exhibition guided tour.

State of Abstraction brings together abstract works by some of Western Australia’s most historically important artists alongside newcomers and lesser-known makers. Spanning the second half of the twentieth century to the present day, the exhibition examines the ways (and reasons) these artists have been so committed to staging profoundly heightened encounters with the complex intersections between materiality, meaning, perception, place, time, history and identity.
