Gotham Studios is Western Australia’s longest-running artist-run initiative and Australia’s third-oldest, celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2013. 

An icon of independent art practice in Perth’s inner city, Gotham continues to evolve and flourish against the odds in the tide of economic rationalism. The collective also manages Peek-a-Boo, a 3m2 exhibition space, once dubbed ‘the smallest gallery in the southern hemisphere’.

For Supermarket, the 12 current studio artists* present Gotham City, a group exhibition revisiting the salon format that earned them the gold medal for Visual Art at Perth’s 2013 FringeWorld Festival, for their Le Salon Scintillant silver anniversary exhibition.
