The View From Here

Exhibition and Shows

8 Dec 2021 to 31 Jan 2022 Daily Event

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.

Capturing 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 WA artists working here and elsewhere.

The exhibition transforms every single gallery space into a celebration of Western Australian art, culture and creativity, including Collective Ground, the first exhibition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander works acquired through AGWA’s 1.5 million dollar Covid-19 Stimulus Package, as well as a new sculpture commission from Ngarralja Tommy May.

Artists included are Sarah Bahbah, the WA-raised, LA-based artist with over 1 million Instagram followers; Tim Meakins, whose giant 3D-printed sculptures of weightlifters, posers and grinning weights, offer a playful interpretation of modern fitness culture and occupy AGWA’s new interior rooftop gallery; Bruno Booth’s ‘Adidas’-wearing cats appearing in unexpected places; and recent works by Abdul Abdullah, Ngarralja Tommy May, Yok & Sheryo, Danielle Freakley, Tyrown Waigana and Tarryn Gill.

The View From Here coincides with the launch of the new AGWA Rooftop, hosting one of the state’s most significant commissions from a Noongar artist, with Christopher Pease’s sprawling, 34-metre light-based artwork wrapping its exterior walls, overlooking the city skyline.
