Meet the Artists: Opening Weekend Talks


Meet the Artists: Opening Weekend Talks

10am-5pm, Sat 6 and Sun 7 Nov | FREE

A weekend celebrating Western Australian creativity.


In The View From Here, The Art Gallery of Western Australia presents its largest ever exhibition of Western Australian art, with 30 major new commissions, exhibitions and acquisitions by leading Western Australian artists and creatives.

The exhibition captures the perspectives of a diverse group of artists, from the state’s renowned and iconic western desert and Kimberley artists, to emerging artists—many from non-traditional arts backgrounds—to established Western Australian artists working here and elsewhere.

The exhibition transforms every single AGWA gallery space into a celebration of Western Australian art, culture and creativity.

Over the opening weekend, join several of The View From Here artists as they speak about their work and practice. These informal talks and pop-up sessions will run across Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 November.

The new AGWA Rooftop and bar will be open from 12pm on the Saturday and the Sunday.
