2025 Shared Space Exhibition Program

Karin Donaldson

Broken Hill has long been home to many artists who, working collectively and independently, embody the thriving arts and cultural scene in the region. Broken Hill City Art Gallery has and continues to champion the work of local artists and groups. Throughout 2025, the former Library Gallery will continue to host our new Shared Space program, dedicated to presenting the work of local artists, groups, curators and collectives.  

BHCAG is now inviting applications for the 2025 Shared Space program.  

Successful projects will receive curatorial assistance to develop and refine an exhibition that is innovative and responds to the modest gallery space. Awarded exhibitions will receive professional installation services and accompanying exhibition marketing. Located in the old residence of the Sully’s building, the domestic scale exhibition space measures 2 x 4 x 4 x 3 metres (approx. 12 sqm). Running wall space is limited to 10 metres (to allow space for text and exhibition titles).  


We encourage applications that: 

  • Are experimental and demonstrate professional development opportunities for artists or collectives  

  • Are multi-modal and employ work in diverse media 

  • Demonstrate socially engaged practice and/or respond to the heritage and culture of this region 

  • Demonstrate a considered and clear idea 

  • Consider space limitations 



Applications for the Shared Space 2025 program are now open. Exhibitors will be announced mid 2024.
