Modern Art Projects Blue Mountains (MAPBM) is a membership-based, incorporated, contemporary arts association based in the Blue Mountains, Western Sydney and regional NSW that supports, advocates for, develops, and produces events and exhibitions of contemporary, multi-form art practice. MAPBM engages with the wider community to develop a new critical agenda for contemporary art in the Western Sydney/Central West regions of NSW. MAPBM creates opportunities beyond the traditional exhibition model, contributes to the dialogue about what affects us most and supports member artists and curators, by connecting them with broader, diverse audiences. Our current membership of 57 is made up of practicing contemporary artists, curators, and arts workers. MAPBM has evolved to become a significant contemporary arts organisation in the region, with growing networks and partnerships, a successful and vibrant exhibition program, and increasing membership.
