The Cross Art Projects. Artist Exhibition.
The Cross Art Projects foregrounds contemporary work and curatorial projects that reflect the multiple relationships between art, life and the public sphere, and explores the boundaries of this context. We are attentive to the local without sacrificing the scope of Indigenous and international views. Cross Art enhances its projects with conversations, walks and events on contemporary art, urban planning, architecture and heritage.

Acknowledgement

We acknowledge Elders as custodians and carers for Country, art and culture. We recognise the harm done by colonisation and extend our respects to ancestors and Elders and all First Nations people.
