The City Collection

HOTA Gallery (formerly Gold Coast City Gallery) was established in 1986 and houses more than 4500 art works worth more than $32 million dollars, making it one of the largest art collections outside of an Australian capital city. A host of art prizes ensured the city collected the pick of artistic responses to contemporary trends, and it consequently reflects key developments in recent Australian art: abstraction; feminist art; Indigenous art; ceramics; and twenty-first-century photography.
