Titled, 'New Sacred', the project introduces the first collaborative exchange between the two institutions and showcases the work of nine mid-career artists who are current residents and alumni of the Parramatta Artists Studios (PAS) at Mosman Art Gallery, from 14 July to 8 September 2018.

The exhibition reflects Australia's multi-faceted cultural identity and considers storytelling through ritual, cultural traditions, narratives and folklore. With a range of media on show (installation, performance, video, painting, photography, drawing and textiles), cross-cultural conversations emerge as personal, family histories and life experiences are examined. The artists and artworks reflect distinct and diverse voices that speak to far-reaching social issues.

The organisation offers the largest studio facility in western Sydney, supporting artists by providing professional studio spaces, exhibition opportunities and curatorial mentorship, while encouraging engagement with creative communities not just within Parramatta's growing cultural sector but with wider Sydney, interstate and international audiences.
