Brett Whiteley: Inside the Studio / John Stringer Prize 2024

John Curtin Gallery 25 Oct - 15 Dec 2024

The John Stringer Prize celebrates its 10th Anniversary in 2024.

Brett Whiteley: Inside the Studio, on tour at John Curtin Gallery from the Art Gallery of New South Wales, offers a rare and intimate insight into the ‘artist’s world’ through the art and life of one of the most admired and intensely creative figures of twentieth century Australia.

Since 1995, the Brett Whiteley Studio has operated as a public museum, presenting an extraordinary time capsule of Whiteley’s art and life. The preserved world of Whiteley’s work is paint splattered and graffitied, littered with objets d’art collected from the artist’s travels and cluttered with books, music and photography.

John Curtin Gallery is pleased to partner with the Art Gallery of New South Wales to present this exhibition of painting, drawing, sculpture, music and photography from the Brett Whiteley Studio. This exhibition presents a unique opportunity for Western Australian audiences to experience the breadth and depth of Whiteley’s artistic life.

This exhibition will be on display at The John Curtin Gallery 25 October - 15 December 2024

Opening Night: Thursday 24 October
Exhibition: 25 October – 15 December

John Stringer Prize 2024

The John Stringer Prize celebrates its 10th Anniversary in 2024. The prize was inaugurated by The Collectors Club in celebration of the memory of one of Australia’s most acclaimed art curators, the late John Stringer (1937–2007). A long-term friend and mentor to its members, Stringer established The Collectors Club in Perth in 1996 to promote informed collecting and patronage of Western Australian contemporary art. Since 2018, the John Curtin Gallery has proudly presented the John Stringer Prize in partnership with The Collectors Club to continue this important legacy.
