Art Representation in Australia

There is a unique in the art that makes it have its charm compared to different things in the world. If art is identified as a form of expression; on the other hand, art can also act as entertainment. Now art is getting closer to the public with festivals, markets to parks to create a sustainable art environment.

Australia, as a country with lively cities, is known for its rich artistic environment. The existence of powerful relationships made between the environment and the public has created not a few subcultures.

Perth, Sydney, and Melbourne to become three main cities that can represent and become a benchmark for the growth of art in Australia. Thanks to a conducive environment and rich in subcultures, various festivals, galleries, and museums are unique tourist attractions to visit to witness the rapid growth of art in these three cities.


Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA)

Different cities, different subcultures. If Sydney has an Australian Museum of Contemporary Art, Perth has the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA). Located in the heart of the city and a historic building, PICA is a representative body of Perth’s arts.

The density of art saved in this location created PICA as an institution that produces various annual programs, ranging from contemporary dance, theater to interdisciplinary projects. With the main objective of promoting and supporting the art sub-speakers in Australia, this museum is useful as an incubator that can stimulate critical discussion between the public, to the point of becoming among the important elements in the growth of art and the arts community in Australia.

Rooftop Movies

The film, as an audiovisual art format, has an advantage in expressing an idea. Using storytelling and diverse cinematography, the film becomes a work of art of robust interpretation. However, despite all its complexity, the film is cool entertainment, and it is the business that is optimized by the Perth public. Using space on the roof of the building, this film screening offers entertainment options for film enthusiasts.

Apart from the ritual of watching a film which normally must be carried out in a theater or cinema where the freedom of the audience is limited, here all people can enjoy the movie with ease and the bonus of getting the sunset if it comes early. The place which starts at 6 pm local time is at the City of Perth Parking Roe Street Car Park 68 Roe St, Perth with ticket prices starting from $ AUD16 to $ AUD30.


Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW)

As one of the first custom institutions in Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales has been established since 1871 to the extent that there are not a few artifacts that map the growth of art in Australia. Its strategic location in The Domain, Sydney, and its magnificent buildings have made it one of the places that tourists must visit when they travel to Sydney. One of the things that created this place is still impressive; one of the many other contemporary galleries in the Art After Hours event.

If galleries or museums often close at 6 or 7 pm, at Art After Hours, the public can visit the gallery until 10 pm every Wednesday. Thanks to extended opening hours, the gallery has become a place of choice for people of all ages to relax after their activities. Besides being able to see art collections, live music until workshops and film screenings are among the agenda at this location.


There is a special charm that is made in a room or industrial building. The angle created as it is the versatile building to be used as the location of the event for all walks of life. That is what made Carriageworks stand out compared to other art spaces in Sydney. As the largest multi-arts center in Australia, this location can become a “home” for a variety of contemporary art. So, not infrequently not a few art programs that carry local and international artists as a form of social reflection and differences in customs in Australia.

Using the old Eveleigh Rail Yards building on Wilson Street, it didn’t take long to find it on the map or even ask residents. Comes with a train station industrial situation with a touch of 19th-century Australian blacksmith workshop elements, and detailed bricks and scrap metal that are still preserved, this location is among the witnesses of the growth of Australian art from time to time.

Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA)

Mentioning the word contemporary in its name, it is clear that this location is dedicated to introducing contemporary art to the public who want to get to know art from Australia and all the world. Strict curation and interactive programs with the public show that art now no longer has the nature of the elite or merely understood by certain parties.

Variants of works that continue to fill the exhibition slots in this museum can shift the perception of the concept of the museum in general that is synonymous with artifacts or works that are not progressive towards the times. From the thematic exhibitions, new works by emerging artists, to sculptures and new media, the museum with art deco architecture is among the main points in Sydney that are worth visiting by tourists.


Australian Center for Contemporary Art (ACCA)

The advantage of this gallery is that the building easily looks like a European Kunsthalle with a touch of rustic iron in copper color, and its location is only 5 minutes from the National Gallery of Victoria. As far as the eye can see, all the corners in this gallery look interesting. When stepping on the building, you will be greeted with a large room that is neatly arranged to highlight the work of the exhibition.

The exciting program here encourages the public to get to know the broad array of artists and artistic growth found in Melbourne and Australia. Supported by free public talks, workshops, and a gallery tour, there is no argument for not coming to this gallery at leisure. If we come at the right time, you can find the works of international artists on display temporarily, one of which is an artist from Beijing, He An, known for the installation of neon signage. The He An exhibition will be held until April 23, 2017.

National Gallery of Victoria (NGV)

This gallery is a premier location in Melbourne that offers magical contemporary art exhibitions. As the oldest and most visited gallery, this location often offers the best work from world-renowned visual artists, including architecture, design, fashion, dance, and even sound. Founded in 1861, NGV is now a gallery that holds an art collection of more than 70,000 works of various ages. So it’s not surprising that Melbourne is among the main cities that are rich in subcultures and the public who are eager for art.

Art in Australia is very diverse due to the wide access and culture of art that is developed between the public and the environment. The existence of these variations, making Australia the destination of choice for world art lovers, especially in 3 main cities, namely Perth, Sydney, and Melbourne. Rows of galleries, museums to folk art parties make these cities an incubator and representation of the growth of art in Australia.
