Art Collective WA is an artist-run, not-for-profit organisation that supports and promotes the work of established WA artists through exhibitions, as well as artist talks, publications and art fairs.
Art Collective WA was established in 2013 by a group of artists who aim to improve the visibility of Western Australian visual artists, in particular those that have lived and worked in the state for many years.
The Collective presents an annual program of exhibitions and artist talks at their gallery in Cathedral Square. They also exhibit by invitation at art fairs (including Sydney Contemporary and Singapore Art Fair) and publish significant monographs on their artist members, most recently Trevor Vickers and Jeremy Kirwan-Ward. Artist talks are recorded for archive purposes and will soon be published online as an ongoing series of podcasts.
The Art Collective WA Benefactors are a group of art collectors who appreciate the work of the Collective and support their work annually.
The Collective is a not-for-profit incorporated organisation, which currently boasts 29 professional artists as members. Membership is by invitation only.
