Through the Collection, our associated programs, and stimulating exhibitions Gallery visitors' are offered a unique and exciting experiences of historic and contemporary Australian artists, and bring the art of the world to Western Australia. We place particular emphasis on the arts of Australia, and due to our geographic position, the Indian Ocean Rim. Our proximity and access to many of the most exciting cultures of the world adds immeasurably to programs, exhibitions, collections and events at the State Art Gallery. Visit our Gallery and watch this site as we build for the future.

The Art Gallery of Western Australia, founded in 1895, occupies a precinct of three heritage buildings on the south-eastern corner of the Perth Cultural Centre. The Gallery houses the State Art Collection, which includes one of the world’s finest collections of Indigenous art, the pre-eminent collection of Western Australian art and design, as well as Australian and International art and design. Located in the heart of Perth’s Cultural Centre and minutes from the CBD, the Art Gallery of Western Australia offers a unique venue for your next event. The Gallery’s main function area, the Concourse, is an impressive space for cocktail parties, dinners and pre-work breakfasts. Surrounded by extraordinary sculptures by William Kentridge, this stunning venue can accommodate events from innovative presentations and launches to an intimate private dinner for a dozen to a spectacular cocktail function for 800 guests.

To complete this extraordinary experience, your guests also have the opportunity to view artworks from the State Art Collection, or enjoy a private viewing of a touring exhibition. To complement the Concourse space, the Gallery has a fully equipped 90 seat Theatrette perfect for professional presentations. The historic Centenary Galleries house the beautifully restored Foundation Boardroom, ideal for creative meetings, smaller dinners and cocktail functions.

While you may like to design your own event, the Gallery also offers fully-inclusive packages to take the hard work out of your next function. The cocktail and dinner packages include exclusive use of the Concourse venue, your choice of menus from the Gallery’s select caterers, lighting and sound equipment, live entertainment and the opportunity to view one of the Gallery’s exhibitions.
