Plimsoll Gallery, University of Tasmania

Innovative local, national and international contemporary art and design

About

The Plimsoll Gallery is on Hobart’s historic waterfront, a short walk from the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Salamanca Place and the city centre.

It showcases curated and touring exhibitions of innovative local, national and international contemporary art and design, and the work of Research Higher Degree candidates and Honours students from the School of Creative Arts.

The Plimsoll Gallery is the University’s showcase gallery and one of the key not-for-profit contemporary art venues in Hobart’s cultural precinct and in Tasmania. The gallery’s mission is to position Tasmanian contemporary art and design within the broader national and international context, auspice aligned discourse and activate community engagement.
