Contemporary Art Tasmania is Tasmania’s professional level, public presentation platform dedicated to contemporary and experimental art. Its provenance is traceable from the foundation of Chameleon contemporary art space in 1982, through 20 years operating as Contemporary Art Services Tasmania (CAST) and, from 2013, as Contemporary Art Tasmania.
The organisation is a member of the Contemporary Art Organisations (Australia) national network (CAOs), NETS Australia (National Exhibitions Touring Support) and is assisted by the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council, Arts Tasmania and through the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy.
An incorporated Australian public company, Contemporary Art Tasmania is guided by a Board of management that consists of arts professionals and key individuals who bring a range of business and related skills.
Contemporary Art Tasmania acknowledges the original and traditional owners of the lands around us, the muwinina and palawa; we pay respect to their elders across all times and recognise today's Tasmanian Aboriginal families as custodians of lutruwita / Tasmania.
