Private Art Collections of Western Australia
Join former Director of the Art Gallery of Western Australia Alan Dodge AM for exclusive visits to a selection of Perth’s private, corporate and university art collections.
For 40,000 years, Western Australia’s First Nations People have created art which responds to the conditions of life in this remote part of the world, and in the last few decades, forward-thinking collectors have amassed impressive collections of local art alongside renowned international works. Visit the Janet Holmes à Court gallery, the Liza and Michael Blakiston Collection in their private home and take a curator-led tour of the Wesfarmers Corporation collection.
Explore the deep connection to Country which intrinsically links Western Australia’s unique flora with its artists’ creations as you wander through the natural beauty of Kings Park overlooking the Swan River and uncover the distinct architecture and arts culture at the West Australian Ballet Centre.
This tour is part of the World Art Tours program organised by the Art Gallery Society of NSW in partnership with Renaissance Tours.
