Description

The Aboriginal Art Gallery, located in Kings Park overlooking the Swan River and the City of Perth, was established first in Hay Street, Perth in 1992, as a venue to exhibit the art of Western Australian Indigenous artists.

The Gallery has been at its present location for the past 15 years. This Kings Park location offers a premium location that encourages appreciation of Aboriginal culture, their contribution to Australian history, family kinship and respect for the land.

The Aboriginal Art Gallery gives visitors the opportunity to meet and talk to Aboriginal artists and observe them as they work, listen to their stories unfold in music and dance performances from some of Western Australia's leading Aboriginal artists. Visitors to the gallery, both national and international, have the opportunity to be a part of the reconciliation between the original inhabitants of Australia and the people who have made this country their home over the past 200 years.

Art is central to Aboriginal culture. In a culture with no written language, it was used to record the beliefs and stories from the Dreaming and to pass these on to each successive generation. "Aboriginal culture represented through art has been dated at over 40,000 years old."

Aboriginal art, while fulfilling its earlier role is now also being used by artists to express and describe the contemporary issues impacting on their lives.

This has expanded the boundaries of Aboriginal Art, from works traditionally rendered on rock, bark and sand using natural ochre, to works using oils, watercolour and acrylic paints, etchings, gauche, collage and solvent transfer prints.

The gallery's reputation is substantially recognised throughout the Aboriginal community and amongst collectors of fine Indigenous art around the world.

The curatorial and management staff of the gallery has extensive knowledge of Western Australian Indigenous art and have expanded the gallery's interest to include the Central Desert region of Utopia. We invite you to experience a journey through Aboriginal art with a variety of innovative, contemporary and traditional Aboriginal art and artefacts.

  • Historical Sites:Buildings

Details

  • Open Days:Sunday,Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday

Description

The Barracks was built to house the Enrolled Pensioner Force (also known as ‘Pensioner Guards’). The guards came to Australia on the convict ships that transported nearly 10,000 prisoners to Western Australia between 1850 – 1868.

The Barrracks were in use to house the Pensioner Foruce until 1887, between 1900 - 1904 the building was convered into offices. 

In the 1960’s the Government surmised there was no need for the Barracks and decided to demolish the buildings.The announcement created a public uproar and motivated the Royal Western Australian Historical Society to form a Barracks Defence Council. The Council worked diligently to keep the Arch however demolition proceeded and in 1966 all but the Arch was demolished.

Architect Richard Roach Jewell was appointed to design an appropriate building. He was at the time an employee of the Department of Public Works. He had arrived in Western Australia in 1851 and designed many of the important public buildings in Perth during the latter half of the nineteenth century, including the Pensioner Barracks. Some of his others designs include boys’ schools in Perth and Fremantle, Wesley Church, the oldest section of the Treasury Buildings, Perth Town Hall, Perth Goal and Government House.

Description

Founded as ‘Indigenart’ in 1993 in Perth by Dr Diane Mossenson and her husband Dan, it has since grown to include galleries in both Perth and Melbourne, exhibiting the finest art by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian artists.

In establishing Indigenart, Diane Mossenson was motivated by the fact that there was no other gallery in Perth dedicated to high-quality Indigenous artworks. Mossenson took this pioneering outlook into the range and styles of artwork that she exhibited. Not content to follow the pack, she strove to exhibit challenging, innovative and exciting artists, rather than already established painters. Mossenson Galleries soon became defined as a trailblazing epicentre for the exciting emerging Indigenous art movement. Glancing over the past 18 years reveals a litany of first solo exhibitions from artists who have gone on to define the indigenous art movement.

With a keen eye for emerging talent, Mossenson has worked tirelessly to promote community art centres – from established centres like Papunya Tula Artists and Maningrida Arts and Culture – through to emerging centres like Minymaku (Tjala), Kalumburu, Iwantja, Waralungku and Milingimbi. It is as a mentor and advisor to artists that Diane Mossenson has found the greatest fulfilment. Mossenson has steered the careers of artists like Shane Pickett, Ngarra, Loongkoonan and Omborrin, in many cases, guiding them from the moment of their very first painting, through to the completion of their final works. She has facilitated projects for her artists, including major commissions, print projects and overseas exhibitions.

In 2006, Mossenson Galleries expanded its interests to include non-Indigenous artists, showing major exhibitions from artists including Col Jordan, Emanuel Raft, Graham Kuo and Peter Pinson. With a keen eye for serious artworks, Mossenson Galleries’ stable of non-Indigenous artists reflects a continuing engagement with inspiring and important artwork.

Mossenson Galleries’ innovation and trend-setting has been acknowledged by public institutions, including the National Gallery of Australia, the National Museum of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Art Gallery of South Australia, and the Art Gallery of Western Australia, which regularly source works from them.

Mossenson Galleries is an accredited tourist business and an officially approved provider to the Western Australian Government. Indigenart has been a finalist in the State Tourism Awards for five years, winning a certificate of merit in 2000. Indigenart is a member of the Australian Commercial Galleries Association, the Association of Western Australian Art Galleries and Tourism Council Western Australia. The galleries are committed to the highest standards of ethics, whilst presenting some of the finest contemporary art available in Australia. Each boasts an extensive stockroom, holding works from represented artists and communities, in all media.

Mossenson Galleries provides consultancy services for the selection and placement of works into collections, both private and corporate. Mossenson Galleries Subiaco also incorporates an in-house framing, restoration and conservation service.

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:

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.
