About us

Sculpture at Bathers was created to bring exceptional exhibitions

Sculpture at Bathers began in 2013 to tell the story of West Australian sculpture as a distinctively special practice.

After four successful free to the public exhibitions in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2020, Sculpture at Bathers returns in 2022 to enliven Perth’s cultural landscape.

We are thrilled to announce that in 2021 Sculpture at Bathers secured funding from the Federal Government through RISE, the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand Fund, which has allowed for the payment of artist fees to successful artists for the first time. Recently, the organisation also secured a grant from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. The support of local and State governments and Fremantle businesses and community will ensure S@B5 is a success. 

We are a small not-for-profit organisation with a big heart led by a dedicated group of artists, volunteers and philanthropists.

A wide net is cast to ensure a dynamic mix of artists, from those with a strong established reputation to fresh, emerging talent. Artists are invited to submit a work representing their best current practice. The result is the largest dedicated survey of West Australian contemporary sculpture.

Our location and its intimacy are unparalleled, allowing us to tap into the unique, historic atmosphere of Fremantle’s West End.

We want more people to live with great West Australian art! And we want our audience to have an unforgettable cultural experience.
