Canberra Contemporary Art Space

CCAS is a space in which contemporary artists can develop daring new work that will energise their practices and bring vitality to the arts in the ACT. With exhibitions by local, national and international artists, CCAS offers opportunities for networking and collaboration, while introducing audiences to exciting new ideas and media. Supported by an experienced team who encourage excellence ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, CCAS aims to provide artists and audiences with their best ever gallery experience.

CCAS is one of a national network of Contemporary Arts Organisations Australia (CAOA), that can be seen as centres of innovation, testing new ideas and directions for the contemporary visual arts. The CCAS program of exhibitions, performances, artists’ talks, public programs and publications generates an environment in which artists can produce work of the highest quality in the context of current national and international practice. CCAS exhibitions and related public programs run over two spaces at Gorman Art Centre in Braddon and CCAS Manuka.
