Meet the Artists: The View From Here Opening Weekend Talks

In The View From Here, 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 and creatives.
The exhibition captures 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 Western Australian artists working here and elsewhere. The exhibition transforms every single AGWA gallery space into a celebration of Western Australian art, culture and creativity,
A weekend celebrating Western Australian creativity.
Over the opening weekend,  join several of The View From Here artists as they speak about their work and practice.
These informal talks and pop-up sessions will run across Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 November.
