Through its exhibition program the gallery has supported work that is challenging and at the forefront of contemporary art practice. The gallery has always featured new work in a range of media, from painting and sculpture to photography, performance, installation, video and other electronic media arts.

Opening with a group of largely unknown artists, the gallery has consistently seen its stable develop into some of Australia’s most renowned practitioners. The gallery currently represents over thirty highly esteemed artists, who have had significant shows and whose works are held in major collections nationally and internationally.
