24HR Art presents a dynamic program of contemporary art exhibitions and public programs. Situated in the far north of Australia, and in close proximity to Asia, the program profiles contemporary practices from the region, including works by Northern Territory, Australian, and Asian artists.
The program’s vision is to cultivate the contemporary visual arts—its artists and audiences. 24HR Art is the leading center for contemporary visual art in the Northern Territory, bringing together diverse communities of artists and audiences to engage with contemporary ideas and practices. It brokers opportunities for artists locally, nationally, and internationally, and connects communities through its dynamic programs.
24HR Art’s core values are: experimentation: providing a supportive and critical space for artists and curators to take risks; accessibility: presenting art in a context that develops audiences and understanding; exchange: connecting artists and arts organizations across the Northern Territory, Australia, and Asia; excellence: pursuing high-quality artistic content and presentation models across exhibition, projects, and public programs; and integrity: conducting business with respect, honesty, and transparency.
