Memento Mori

In the midst of life we are in death.

Memento Mori are artworks that prompt us to ponder the emptiness and transience of earthly pleasures and re-assess our moral progress as we move toward the certainty of death.

Self Portrait as Shared Dream

Drawn from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art’s strong thematic focus on self-portraiture, this exhibition presents a collection of works in which the individual is a collective construction.


Presented by Artsource and the UWA Cultural Precinct, this symposium is the first of a proposed series of symposia that will emerge over the next three years placing a national focus on Western Australian art.

Undiscovered Symposium took place on 20 October 2014.

The Gallery presents an innovative program of exhibitions, featuring the University's art collection, contemporary art and touring shows. All exhibitions are supported by an engaging public program that includes artist talks, seminars, tours, symposia and conferences. Open: Tues - Sat, 11am - 5pm.
