Our aim is to serve as a hub of creative practice, critical dialogue and innovative thinking around contemporary art and to develop as a permanent exhibition platform that will become an essential destination for contemporary art and cultural experience on the Gold Coast. Our annual program focus is monthly curated exhibitions, local artist in residence program, event series, artist talks, publications and off-site projects.
The Walls was opened by artist Rebecca Ross as two white walls in Miami in early 2013 and in order to facilitate an expanded program moved to its present location at Mountain View Avenue in Miami in late in 2013. Artist Dylan Quirk helped to build the new four white walls, mezzanine and office structure, and served as a board member and contributed to the directorship of the space from 2014-15. The Walls is an incoporated association and is run on a not-for-profit basis.
