The transformation of the Art Gallery of WA includes over 100 new commissions plus a $10 million new rooftop bar area with an interior gallery, an outdoor sculpture walk, and a 34 metre contemporary Aboriginal art piece. Director Colin Walker talks us through what to expect as the Gallery reopens, and how the vision to make the building more welcoming has gone deeper than just bricks and mortar.
