Cultivating excellence, ethics and expertise.

The Art Galleries Association of Australia (AGAA) is the peak body for commercial art galleries in the primary visual arts market.

Committed to enhancing the value and appreciation of Australian contemporary art, as well as the reputation and livelihood of artists, agaa drives innovation and professional excellence among members, promotes ethical practice, and presents a unified voice on relevant issues.

As diverse as they are inspiring, our members comprise the most important and exciting galleries in the nation.

Established in 1976 and connected to similar organisations across the Asia-Pacific, we operate not-for-profit, but to benefit the wider arts community.

For galleries, agaa membership brings respect, recognition and influence, while providing certainty and confidence for artists, collectors, potential buyers and art lovers.
