About Us

Sculpture at Bathers began in 2013 to tell the story of West Australian sculpture as a distinctively special practice.

After four successful ‘free to the public’ exhibitions in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2020 Sculpture at Bathers returns in 2022 to enliven Perth’s cultural landscape.

We are thrilled to announce that we have been successful in securing funding from the Federal Government through the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative, which is designed to help reinvigorate the Australian arts sector in dealing with the ongoing effects of COVID-19.

We are a small organisation with a big heart led by a dedicated group of artists, volunteers and philanthropists.

A wide net is cast to ensure a dynamic mix of artists, from those with a strong established reputation to fresh, emerging talent. Artists are invited to submit a work representing their best current practice. The result is the largest dedicated survey of West Australian contemporary sculpture.

Our location and its intimacy are unparalleled, allowing us to tap into the unique, historic atmosphere of Fremantle’s West End.

We want more people to live with great West Australian art! And we want our audience to have an unforgettable cultural experience…

Wheelchair Access
