Abstract
This article reflects on the intersections between popular culture and contemporary art through the prism of curatorial and artistic practice presented within one small museum institution – Gold Coast City Gallery in Queensland, Australia. The purpose is to share the importance of the kinds of understandings that artists brought to the contemporary culture of the city and the way in which the museum, through collections, programmes and placing this work in critical dialogue with the community, sought to value a reading of popular culture for what it revealed about the city’s history and to make a contribution towards the ongoing wrestling of its evolving identity.
