Counihan Gallery

The Counihan Gallery In Brunswick is Merri-bek Council’s public art gallery and has a focus on presenting contemporary art exhibitions. The gallery endeavours to encourage discussion and debate about contemporary art and culture through its public program of floor talks, forums and workshops.

The Counihan Gallery opened in 1999 and is named in honour of the Australian artist and activist Noel Counihan (1913-1986), who was a champion of social justice and a vocal supporter of free speech.

The Counihan exhibition program reflects a commitment to political activation, sustainability, and creative expression.

The Counihan Gallery acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people as the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waterways in the area now known as Merri-bek. They pay respect to their Elders past, present, and emerging, as well as to all First Nations communities who significantly contribute to the life of the area.
