The guys at Form gallery sent me there. This is brilliant. It is free, it is eclectic , it is fresh, well curated, well spaced etc... The collection was part of Hatched, some kind of student grant for the best one, not sure. Anyway, very very beautiful, naive and young. Many mistakes as well but a promising future.

We found this place by accident as downtown was blocked off by Fringe set-up - but it was worth it. The Richard Bell Exhibit of the Aboriginal Embassy affair was spectacular, tho judging by the response of some visitors not to everyone's liking.

Located 5mins away from the Perth train station PICA is close to everything. This is truly a cool place to check out, there's always stuff for kids to do outside and there's so many restaurants near by.

I watch plays here. The stage on the ground floor is medium sized where everyone can get a good view. It is very well air-conditioned which is a must in Perth! There is a bar upstairs which I am yet to visit.

I think I just don't get modern art, or this kind of modern art. The major installations were a canvas covered in nutella, and white refrigerators piled ceiling high with paper, toilet paper, and weird cream strewn around them. Um ok. Well it got me out of the rain for a little while

I love the arts and enjoy the colour and design in all materials. It is good to see young designers using all types of events to display their talents.
