What’s in the BOX?, BOAA’s travelling preview exhibition, returns to Ballarat to showcase a selection of the 150 artists chosen for BOAA 2018.
Last year, we challenged our artists to create an artwork that not only embodied their artistic practice, but also was able to be packed into a regular shoe box.  Our artists responded to this challenge with an extraordinary body of work that explores the diversity of our 2018 artists.
Don't miss the opportunity to catch a sneak preview of what these amazing artists have to offer.

Join us for opening night,
