About the Gallery

The JCG presents exhibitions by local, national and international artists, presenting works across a wide range of visual art mediums and interrogating many of the important issues of our day.

It capitalises on its location within a research-rich university environment to curate exhibitions that bridge art, science and academia in engaging and innovative ways.

All exhibitions are accompanied by an extensive public program – talks by artists, curators and subject specialists, panel discussions, symposiums, tours, performances, screenings, publications and special events.
