Art galleries and museums have traditionally been presenting works of art "from the top down". This assumes that engagement with such works must be guided by the "pearls of wisdom" delivered by directors, curators and educators through their displays, labels, panels, and guided tours. The result is that a gap has been created between institutions and their audiences in terms of perception about the former's role in society as well as mutual expectations.

This issue is particularly apparent in Perth, where the traditional audience that has historically been content with the status quo is now being replaced by new generations and, especially, by new needs and demands that go hand in hand with the changing fabric of the city's social structure and complexity.

Dr Stefano Carboni, Director of the Art Gallery of Western Australia, will address this issue and other related topics in this lively and thought-provoking Q&A session. Drinks will be available after the presentation.

This event is a collaboration between the RSA A+NZ Perth City Network and the Art Gallery of Western Australia. For more information, please contact RSA Perth City Network Convenor Martin Ringer at martinringer@groupinstitute.com.
