QCA Galleries promotes experimentation and innovation across four gallery spaces

QCA Galleries are a facility of the Queensland College Art. Exhibitions, guest lectures and artist talks are programmed throughout the year with exhibition opportunities available to students, staff and external exhibitors. Exhibitions are free and open to the public.

We aim to foster experimentation and innovation while providing a forum for research, ideas and exchange. Exhibition programming varies across our gallery spaces, with a primary focus on contemporary art and design, research, curatorial projects and connections between artists from South East Queensland and beyond.

QCA Galleries are comprised of six exhibition spaces – the Project Gallery, Webb Gallery and Grey Street Gallery, all located at the QCA South Bank campus; the White Box Gallery located at the QCA Gold Coast campus; POP Gallery, off-campus in Fortitude Valley; and Machinery Street Galleries, off-campus in Bowen Hills.
