SCA Gallery

The SCA Gallery is a space for staff, students, visiting professional artists, scholars and curators to develop, experiment and present research and artistic works to SCA and the broader arts community. Through the Gallery we foster understanding and appreciation of contemporary art by providing a range of challenging and innovative exhibitions and events. The annual program features works by Australian and international contemporary visual artists, staff, students and graduates.
