The gallery has adopted refreshing new approach, which includes the Wesfarmers Micro Galleries – Sky and Garden, Nano Galleries, Rise Sound Gallery, the Imagination Room and the Stratosphere.
“The building may be the same but the visitor experience is much richer and more varied, promising to appeal to a broader range of people, including children,” WA Culture and the Arts Minister John Day said.
“As our leading visual arts institution, it is exciting to see the gallery and its dedicated team embracing technology and applying innovation and imagination,” he added.
The Imagination Room is dedicated to activity, education, events, artist presentations and digital adventure. The highly successful Voluntary Gallery Guide program has been refreshed under the new name of Guru Guides.
The art gallery has also revealed a new brand identity, plus increased digital offerings, delivered through AGWA TV and virtual reality artwork experiences.
“Along with hundreds of people this week, I have also been thrilled to meet Aggie, believed to be the world’s first art gallery visitor engagement robot and guide,” the Minister said.
“She is truly engaging, and will complement the Guru Guides by hosting special tours and children’s art classes.”
The opening of new spaces and programs coincides with the start of the gallery’s latest exhibition, Sacred and Profane, featuring three large-scale works by renowned international artists: Public Notice 2 2007 by Jitish Kallat, Chinese Bible 2009 by Yang Zhichao and The sacred and the profane 1998 by Nalini Malani.
