RMIT Gallery


RMIT Gallery is RMIT University’s premier exhibition gallery, presenting local, Australian and international creative works, research outcomes and cultural stories that promote social and academic interaction between the University and a global public with a focus on external partnerships and digital dissemination.

The public exhibition program delivers unique experiences of visual art, new media, sonic art, design, popular culture, science and technology fusions in its five museum standard galleries spaces, maintaining a strong commitment to the visceral power of material experience.

Permanent Collection

For over 125 years, the RMIT University Art Collection has served as a repository for education and research, and as a source of inspiration. Encompassing some of the finest examples of modern and contemporary art in Australia, it reflects the University's commitment to its - and Australia's - cultural history through the creative endeavours of staff and alumni, and of external artists whose work mirrors the University's own ideals and aspirations. The collection comprises over 2000 artworks in a variety of media. Many works are on display throughout RMIT's campuses, and form an important component in exhibitions at RMIT Gallery.
