John Curtin Gallery



The John Curtin Gallery boasts three first class gallery spaces. It is one of Australia's newest major public art galleries, and one of the largest and best equipped University galleries in Australia. Since opening in February 1998 it has presented numerous exhibitions of international, national and local artists including Bill Viola, Stan Douglas, Grace Weir, Joao Penalva, Char Davies, Ken Rinaldo, Victoria Vesna, Stelarc, Dennis del Favero, Tracey Moffatt, Nolene Lucas, Robert MacPherson, Alan Sekula, Sally Smart, Patricia Piccinini, Narelle Jubelin, Susan Cohn, and Brian Blanchflower.

Sir Laurence Brodie-Hall Atrium and Access Gallery

The John Curtin Gallery also includes an extensive atrium area which, due to its scale, is able to display very large works and also provides a wonderful space for gallery functions. The Access Gallery, located next to the BankWest Lecture Theatre, is a smaller, more intimate exhibition space.
