Programming/selection process is by ongoing submissions presented by artists, curators, or groups. Exhibitions are selected by the Director according to artistic merit and relevance to the broader understanding of contemporary Aboriginal art. We program a wide variety of contemporary artistic practices, including two- and three-dimensional works, media/new media and performance-based art.
