Gotham Studios Inc and the Peek-a-Boo Gallery

Gotham Studios was established in 1987 and is Western Australia’s longest running artist-run initiative (and Australia's third-oldest), Gotham celebrating its 25th anniversary this year since being officially incorporated in 1988.   Along with other heritage buildings in the precinct, the building was closed for redevelopment in 2009. The studios were officially re-opened by The Right Honourable The Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi in September 2011 for Gotham Returns, which included a full-scale exhibition inside and throughout the building, and also the re-launch of the Peek-a-Boo Gallery - Gotham’s own ground floor window-box gallery - presenting a small-scale group show of small works.

 

During 25 years of artistic production, over 130 visual artists have had access to invaluable inner-city working space. Long time member Andrew Nicholls notes that Gotham has 

‘collectively made an assertive contribution to Western Australian culture over the past two decades, with many of the state’s leading visual artists, writers and curators based at the studio throughout its lifespan. Gotham is an icon of independent visual arts practice in the state.’ (Nicholls, 2013, p 3)

Established as 'the smallest gallery in the southern hemisphere' when the studios were first launched in the late 1980s (at an even smaller scale than its current floor-to-ceiling format), Peek-a-Boo today presents exhibitions of contemporary art from a gallery space only three square metres in size. Exhibitions can be viewed free of charge from the pavement at 57 James Street, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Initially intended as a playful dig at Gotham’s neighbour, the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Peek-a-Boo was founded to allow experimental and non-institutional art to thrive at street level in Perth’s cultural centre. 

Last February and March, Gotham Gone Wild  honoured this legacy via a programme of surprising and celebratory artworks and interventions for Perth’s Fringe World 2013. In celebration of the Studio’s twenty-fifth anniversary, the artists of Gotham presented a changing programme of performances, sound works, temporary installations and events at Peek-a-Boo including: public life drawing from the street as models posed in the window; and night drawing - the artists drawing spectators on the glass and vice versa. Gotham Gone Wild complemented Le Salon Scintillant (winner of the Best Visual Art Award for Fringeworld 2013), Gotham’s inaugural Silver Anniversary exhibition at Moana Project Space, Perth.

Gotham has collaborated in the past with non-member artists at Peek-a-Boo, but this year, the gallery programme also features 7 exhibitions from exclusively non-member artists.  In November, Gotham Studios will be opening its doors to the public for the city-wide event, Perth Open House 2013, and has invited local artist Ben Crappsley to be the Peek-a-Boo artist for that time.

Description

History

The Perth Centre for Photography was established in 1992 as The Photography Gallery of WA to promote and support emerging and established photo based art in Western Australia. A name change coincided with a move to our larger Brisbane Street premises in 2004, allowing us to create two distinct exhibition spaces, and expand our exhibition profile.

Exhibitions

The Perth Centre for Photography annual exhibition program is presented in two galleries. PCP exhibits the work of emerging and established artists from local, national, and international backgrounds. The program includes individual and group shows, and popular competitions promoting landscape and portrait photography. PCP welcomes proposals from all artists practicing in photography and related media. A gallery fee, at competitive rates, applies to successful applicants.

Education

PCP regularly conducts artist talks, and invites all exhibitors to speak publicly about their work in the gallery. PCP also runs workshops by artists who are recognised as experts in their field. A seminar program is also currently being developed that will integrate technical and practical aspects of photography with critical accounts of the medium.

Partnerships

Our ongoing community commitment extends to partnerships with regional, indigenous and community programs.
We have exhibitions that travel to regional destinations with assistance from Art on the Move. We also show new work from regional and remote locations, with a particular focus on indigenous work.
PCP is proud to be associated with the FotoFreo Festival. We have partnerships with Propel Youth Arts WA with their Camera Recycle project, and have a good relationship with The Minter Ellison Youth Arts Foundation and The Perth International Arts Festival.
The Perth Centre for Photography has been instrumental in introducing a diverse program of emerging and established local, national and international artist’s work to Perth’s photographic and arts community, as well as the general public.

Membership

Members of the Perth Centre for Photography have a common interest in photographic media and art. A small annual fee helps support PCP’s exhibition program and develop its education program. PCP encourages all those interested in photography and art to join to support their local photography organisation and receive exclusive membership benefits in return.

Membership benefits include:

Invitation to submit your photography related news or content to the bi-monthly newsletter
Regular newsletter and update of PCP events and opportunities
Invitation to exhibit along side other photomedia artists in an annual group exhibition
Discounts to PCP’s competition program
Industry discounts
See the membership page for more details about exclusive member benefits and how to join.

Volunteer

The success of The Perth Centre of Photography is dependent on the continued support by a dedicated and energetic group of volunteers. Volunteers assist in a range of important duties essential to the running of a professional art gallery. PCP runs placement programs for people who are interested in a career in the Arts. Volunteers gain experience in gallery and exhibition operations. Free membership to PCP is also benefit of volunteering.

Funding

PCP is a not-for profit exhibition centre, assisted by the Western Australian Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts

Providing a site for experimentation, critical analysis, discussion and debate is fundamental to its charter. PICA is known for the rigour and breadth of its artistic and education programs, high production standards and impeccable presentation. In many aspects of its operations, PICA might be understood as an incubator: providing resources, mentoring and support for both emerging and mature artists whilst promoting new and emerging ideas, forms and practices to the broader community.
