In 1953, Rose and Josiah (Joe) Skinner took up the lease in the old building on Malcolm street and turned it into a renowned gallery space. By the middle of the 1960’s, less than a decade after it opened, it was the cornerstone venue for the Annual Festival of Perth, hosting exhibitions from artists like Guy Grey Smith, Robert Junpier, and Brian McKay. Notably, the Duke of Edinburgh attended the gallery in the middle of the 1960’s, to launch an exhibition by Sidney Nolan.
As it stands today, the space has been carefully remodelled to house pieces from the current Jardan collection. Located just by Kings Park in Perth, the interiors were designed to reflect historic Modernist Australian architecture of the 1950’s and 60’s, bringing the layout of the old gallery space to life with a large open family space, which is surrounded by smaller, more intimate rooms.
