'The Book Club is a major project to document Western Australian artists and promote their work nationally. In an environment in which artists and artworks - indeed any cultural material - from the west coast are routinely marginalised on the national arts agenda, such publications are vital correctives.'
[John Cruthers, Art Advisor and Curator]
Every 12-18 months, the Board selects the next artist and we start the process of seeking out the artist’s works that reside in private and public art collections all over Australia and the world. We commission essays by revered Australian curators and commentators about the artist’s work and life. And work with editors, photographers, designers and printers. Once all coordinated we launch the latest monograph at our gallery with a solo exhibition by the selected artist.
You can buy these publications online and at our gallery.
To support the publishing costs we seek donations to support these valuable archival documents. For each monograph we run a campaign. Contact us if you’d like to contribute.
