Paper Mountain is a Perth based ARI with a project space & studios located in the heart of Northbridge, WA.
Paper Mountain presents a top notch program of surprising new art and ideas, and is dedicated to supporting a broad span of contemporary art projects. Our space is malleable and we use it to nurture experimentation, to challenge artists’ practices, and to encourage collaboration and skill/resource sharing.
