The Cross Art Projects is a Sydney based not-for-profit curatorial initiative founded by Jo Holder in September 2003 and run by a small group of independent curators.

It foregrounds contemporary work that reflects the multiple relationships between art and life, art and the public sphere and explores the boundaries of this context. They are attentive to the local without sacrificing the scope of indigenous or international views. The Cross Art Projects presents curated exhibitions and work by artists who create critical projects that question and/or reflect our present circumstances and whose work has a rigorous conceptual foundation. Projects are enhanced with conversations and round-tables by local activist, architectural and heritage groups.
