Art Events and Programs


The first commission for ART IN PLACE asked artists to respond to the theme of ‘spotlight’, with artworks that encourage audiences to look above the ground, toward the horizon and up, to where the water, earth and built environment meet the skyline.

Perth-based artists VJzoo (Kat Black and Jasper Cook) collaborated with Kambarni (Kamsani Bin Salleh) to deliver the first project for ART IN PLACE. Their artwork, Confluence, was a projection-based installation across the body of water and illuminated on a fleet of boats, where the Swan (Derbarl Yerrigan) and Canning (Djarlgarro Beeliar) rivers meet.

Confluence took place along the Canning Beach Road foreshore from Thursday, 21 June To Sunday 24 June 2018, nightly from 6:00pm to 8.30pm. Visit our Facebook page for photos.
