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.
