An art space run by artists for artists, Gotham Studios is one of Perth's longest running art initiatives.
Established in 1987 on the first and second floors of the old NSW Bank Chambers, Gotham has evolved into an icon of independent Western Australian artistic endeavour, placing working artists in the heart of Perth’s CBD for over two decades.
Hundreds of visual artists have held studios in Gotham over the collective’s life span, including many of the state’s most celebrated artists.
From the outset, Gotham’s primary role has been to provide an inner-city work space for artists and to encourage artists to come together for group projects and exhibitions.
Gotham is within walking distance of many of Perth’s most significant cultural institutions including the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Western Australia and the Northbridge entertainment precinct.
The gallery is not open to the public although it is possible to arrange studio visits with individual artists by contacting them directly.
