Galleries and exhibitions

Showcasing works to the University and broader arts communities

At Sydney College of the Arts we have an active gallery program of exhibitions featuring works by Australian and international contemporary visual artists and designers, staff, students and graduates.

Our galleries are an important resource and educational platform for students and staff. Through our galleries we offer opportunities to experience the curatorial process, to prepare and deliver an exhibition, and to build professional and academic networks.

The galleries also provide a space for staff and visiting professional artists, scholars and curators to develop, experiment and present research and artistic works to the college and broader arts communities.

By providing access to a range of challenging and innovative exhibitions and events, the galleries contribute signficantly to the public's understanding and appreciation of contemporary art.
