Art? Art! Art… is an more than an exhibition presenting a diverse array of provocative works by some of Australia’s most significant contemporary artists: Abdul AbdullahAmanda DaviesBen QuiltyCyrus TangDaniel von Sturmer, Fiona HallLucienne RickardMatt CalvertMegan WalchMichael CookNathan TaylorPat Brassington

The artworks in this exhibition have been especially selected to fascinate both those viewers who are curious about contemporary art and those who may be rather sceptical about its value. It is an opportunity to check out the artworks and, if you feel like it, to have your say about what you see in a safe and anonymous environment where all thoughts and responses are valid.

Individual viewers are welcome any time. Community and school groups can make a special booking with the curator.
