Photo gallery: ART150 launch party

Hundreds of students, staff, artists and art-lovers joined us for the official launch of ART150 on Thursday 2 March 2017 at the Southbank campus.

The ART150 Launch party coincided with the exhibition opening of Presence at the Margaret Lawrence Gallery, which features seven works from notable alumni including Frederick McCubbin, Clarice Beckett, Fred Williams, Louise Hearman and more. 

It also marked the closing of Present, a recent exhibition at the newly christened VCA Artspace (formerly the Student Gallery), which included works by four recent VCA graduates: Jake Preval, Adelle Mills, Kirsty Budge and Julian Hocking.
