Established in 2010, BAProjects operates as an itinerant platform for the promotion and exhibition of contemporary art. It provides artists with absolute control of the conditions for presenting their work by facilitating projects independently from a standardised exhibition program. It encourages the development of critical dialogue between artists, curators, writers and collectors through an array of cultural events including exhibitions, performance and publications.

BAProjects does not represent artists, but works collaboratively with them to realise projects on a case by case basis. It does not accept unsolicited submissions.

This website acts as an archive of projects to date.
