This year, for the first time, Visual Art will showcase the work of all our graduating Art students in one spectacular event. Already one of Melbourne’s landmark cultural events, the 2019 VCA Art Exhibition will be bigger and better than ever – celebrating our Undergraduate, Honours and Masters students in one, combined exhibition.

Grad.Show.2019 presents works from graduating students from Drawing and Printmaking, Painting, Photography, and Sculpture, as well as those graduating from the Honours program, the Master of Contemporary Art, and the Master of Fine Art.

This collaborative approach to the show opens up more of our campus so you will have the opportunity to view the exhibition across the Stables and Martyn Myer Arena, the Margaret Lawrence Gallery, Art Studios and Space 28 in the adjacent Theatre Building. Our newly opened Linear Park will  come alive with food, music and drinks.

Don't miss the opportunity to experience challenging and brave pieces at the frontier of contemporary practice, and to encounter the future of Australian visual art.


Food and drinks will available on the evening, with delicious food from Taco Truck and Beatbox Kitchen, as well as a great selection of Australian beer and wine. Please note that these services will be card only.
