52 ACTIONS brings together fifty-two Australian artists from across the country to present the diversity, complexity, and dynamism of contemporary Australian art now. This exhibition evolved from Artspace’s online commissioning platform of the same name, a year-long project that presented new works by a different artist or collective each week on the Sydney art institution’s digital platforms.

Works centre around the social and cultural importance of art as action, exploring critical ideas such as discrimination, climate justice, mapping migration stories, and the unceded sovereignty of First Peoples.
