through an adventurous acquisitions program, and Curator of the
City of Fremantle Collection, as well as Curator of the Joondalup
Invitation Art Award from 2001-2005. It is this level of embedded
practice that has enabled her to build such strong relationships
and to assist in bringing the work of so many emerging and
established artists to the attention of a wider audience.
Public art is one of the most effective ways of building these
linkages, and since 2004 Paola has been actively engaged in
that miraculous balancing act that brings public art projects to
completion while keeping all the participants, including the
long-term audience, in harmonious equilibrium. It is a rare skill.
Her current role at the City of Perth brings this range of
expertise into play across many fields, managing the City’s
collections and its public art program, and focusing on
sponsorship and support for the artist and arts companies,
including PIAF, Artrage, WAO, WASO, WA Ballet, WAMI, the
Blue Room and more. Building these relationships is vital in
bridging the gaps of understanding about how the various cogs
of a community lock into place to embrace the excitement and
riches that come with a shared purpose. It is precisely the vision
and energy that is required to make Western Australia a centre
of cultural life for our region. Sharing the same time zone as 60
per cent of the world’s population and in close proximity to what
will become the major economies of our time, we are perfectly
poised to become a major international centre of cultural activity,
but it will take the vision and commitment of insiders like Paola
Anselmi to realise that goal.
