The City’s commissioning program was initiated in 2008, inviting artists to produce artworks reflecting social and cultural themes of Perth.
Since then the City has carried out major photographic and artwork commissions - investments that enable the City to acquire the work of significant contemporary artists and provide an opportunity to document the essence of the city and its social and physical development.
In 2010 we began a targeted commissioning program in conjunction with our Social History exhibitions, engaging indigenous artists to create works conveying an indigenous view of the exhibition themes.
