Upcoming Exhibitions



Worldine presents eight West Australian emerging artists with regional roots exploring how the geography of our movements in time can be translated into spatially mapped memories.

Spanning a range of artistic disciplines from photography, film, painting to installation, Worldline promises to be an exciting survey of fresh talent on the West Australian arts scene, questioning why so many people from regional backgrounds become interested in the arts, and why do they also go on to be especially successful in the arts?
