The University Art Gallery presents a diverse range of exhibitions to inspire and stimulate ideas, views and opinions.

The exhibition and associated education programs engages an interdisciplinary approach exploring the intersections between art, science, history, philosophy, media and culture, to name a few.

The changing program of about six to eight shows each year which are largely in-house curated exhibitions aims to create a broader understanding of the arts and culture to the wider community whilst also showcasing the research, education and entertainment value of each exhibition.
