Contemporary Art Tasmania is supported by occasional projects developed by guest curators.

The 2023 CAT Guest Curator is Scot Cotterell. His exhibition Last Messages will open at CAT in February 2023. 


CAT acts to generate, influence, filter and reveal the complexities of contemporary art; that constantly shifting field of activity that engages with – or challenges – the present. One way we do this is through curatorial projects, developed both in-house by CAT as well as externally by professional curators working outside the organisation. Guest curators contribute to creating an expansive environment for our programs and for professional practice.

Curatorial projects can be instigated through invitation or by application. We welcome expressions of interest from curators for projects that are experimental in nature, contemporary in concept, and that clearly demonstrate viability. Click here for submission details.
