Located on our Callaghan campus, the University Gallery is renowned for ideas driven contemporary exhibitions from art practitioners and researchers – locally, nationally, internationally and from our own University community.  For over 25 years it has been a site for cross-disciplinary collaboration and knowledge exchange that champions creative thinking and engagement. It is a place for contemporary artists to develop and profile their practice, presenting compelling exhibitions that inspire.

Set in an award winning building designed by internationally renowned Alumnus, Peter Stutchbury, the University Gallery exhibits a wide range of artistic production from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, International exchanges, touring and collective shows, and solo artists. Throughout the year our calendar continues to present a dynamic series of innovative and diverse exhibitions and events, curated in support of our students, our researchers, our staff and our community.
