MG_4328Salamanca Art Centre’s most intimate venue is encountered even before passing through the front doors. Commanding the best public location in Salamanca Place, Lightbox is a square metre of window space available to selected artists to install works that utilise the attributes of this special exhibition space. This gallery is part of our subsidised program and is offered to SAC Associate Members on the acceptance of an exhibition proposal.

The Lightbox is a window space beside the main entrance to the Salamanca Arts Centre on Salamanca Place and can be viewed by the public 24 hours a day.

SAC has an on-going curatorial program for emerging artists to interpret the space with specific installations that reflect its dimensions and the passage of light through it.

Options for lighting and sound are also considered by SAC, and there has been a great deal of interest from other disciplines such as architecture and puppetry.
