Melting fridges, mysticism, microcosms and mandalas are all in Art & Australia Collection 2003–2013, on tour from the Newcastle Art Gallery. The Art and Australia Collection includes a variety of innovative contemporary works of art including video, painting, sculpture, light installation, sound art and photography.

The Art & Australia Contemporary Art Award was established by the respected art journal of the same name, to promote the work of artists from Australia and New Zealand. The award focuses on artists in the first five years of their practice, supporting them with a critical text discussing their practice and the illustration of the work on the magazine’s back cover. To date, the work of twenty-four artists has been acquired for the collection, which represents not only a diversity of art practice but also cultural perspectives within Australian art today.
