Forrest Place was redeveloped in 2014, cementing its position as the number one public square in Perth.
Purpose built lounges and al fresco public spaces provide an area in which to sit and relax creating a destination for city workers and visitors alike. There is a large event program in the space including Christmas festivities, school holiday programs, Twilight Hawkers Market and a number of external events, all of which draw thousands of people to the CBD.
Forrest Place is home to several permanent installations including Grow Your Own (2011) by James Angus and Water Labyrinth (2012), the first permanent water sculpture by international artist Jeppe Hein.
Winter Arts Season at Forrest Place
With those cool, crisp mornings setting in, there’s no doubt winter is just around the corner, knocking at our doors and seeping through our windows. What if we embraced the elements of winter and found the beauty in rain, wind and frost?
Incorporating 16 headline artworks, more than 150 programmed arts events and 60 food and beverage offers, the City of Perth’s Winter Arts Season is your gateway to doing just that.
The striking centrepiece for the Winter Arts Season, Sky by Geoffrey Drake-Brockman is a temporary artwork in Forrest Place.
Inspired by Perth’s winter skies, the piece features 32 blue and white fabric elements that launch into the air when it senses movement.
While in the city on Friday 2 June, check out the start of Winter Arts Season by being one of the first people to view Sky with a performance by STRUT Dance entitled Winter Shadows at 7.10pm.
Sky will be on show 2 to 15 June at Forrest Place. Perth.
