Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation
|Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) was established in April 2008 as a not-for-profit organisation to champion research, education and exhibitions of significant and innovative contemporary art from Australia, the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.|
The two-decades long experience of developing Sherman Galleries as a respected commercial and educational enterprise within the international art world underpins the Foundation at both a conceptual and practical level.
SCAF works closely with artists in commissioning new work and developing exhibitions that energise and respond to the gallerys four-part complex comprising a large exhibition area, mini out-site space, versatile theatre annexe and a Zen garden.
The multipurpose physical site and available cutting-edge technology enable the presentation of film and video to museum standards, immersive installations, architectural interventions and site-specific sculptures.
Partnerships with public art institutions at a regional, state and national level, for example the Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane and the National Art School, Sydney - facilitate the development of larger scale projects and incorporate concurrent or touring exhibitions, co-publications, discrete projects and off-site events.
Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the Land throughout Australia and pays respect to the Elders, past and present, of all Australias Indigenous peoples.
