The Salek Minc Lecture Series is a series of occasional lectures given by significant contributors to the visual arts.

Salek Minc (1905-1983), for whom this lecture is named, was a prominent doctor, collector and supporter of the visual arts. He was much beloved by many friends and students, and his enthusiasm for the arts did much to foster their development in Western Australia.
