Moores Building Contemporary Art Space

Located in Fremantle’s historic west end, the Moores Building Contemporary Art Space (MCAS) is managed and curated by Fremantle Arts Centre. An arts and cultural hub in the heart of the city, MCAS offers regular visual arts exhibitions, workshops and performances.

MCAS seeks to promote a wide range of emerging and established contemporary artists by actively fostering the development of an experimental and highly innovative exhibition program. The gallery’s unique architectural design offers artists the opportunity to develop site specific installations. The building is a raw and rustic space with open ceiling cavities and inimitable heritage features.
