4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art fosters excellence and innovation in contemporary Asian and Australian culture through research, documentation, development, discussion and presentation of contemporary visual art. We believe that Asian cultural thinking will have an important impact on the future. 4A’s aim is to ensure contemporary visual art plays a central role in understanding the dynamic relationship between Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
4A has a distinctive approach to addressing Australia’s cultural diversity through a dynamic program including local and international exhibitions, public programs, workshops, seminars, symposiums and community activities. These have been recognised locally and internationally as having raised awareness of Asian-Australian art and culture and Australia‘s place in the Asia-Pacific region. 4A is a pioneering institution focusing on the promotion of a greater understanding of Asia, and Australia’s role in the region. Since 4A’s inception in 1996 the organisation has gained valuable insight, networks, knowledge and understanding of cultural organisations and throughout the Asia region. We are part of a close-knit circle of organisations and individuals who have been working in the region for over a decade.
4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art is an initiative of the Asian Australian Artists Association (4A), a non-profit organisation established in 1996 to present and promote the work of Asian and Asian-Australian artists. This organisation was established by a group of artists who were keen to address the cultural contribution of Asian migration to Australia and to develop Asian and Australian cultural relations.
