Salamanca Art Centre’s most intimate venue
is encountered even before passing through the front doors.
Commanding the best public location in Salamanca Place, the 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 SAC’s subsidised program and is offered to SAC Associate Members and SAC Resident Artists for FREE on the acceptance of an exhibition application.
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 artists to interpret the space with specific installations that reflect its dimensions and activate the space.
In May 2019 the Lightbox underwent some renovations to increase the visibility of works, which included: the removal of the multi-pane window, which was replaced with a single pane window, and new white walls and floor.

SAC assesses applications for the Lightbox twice annually, with the due dates for submissions as 30 April and 30 September each year (excluding special rounds).
