As a non-commercial and independent space, Gertrude offers artists freedom for risk-taking, innovation and ambition. Gertrude gives audiences unique insight into the creative development of artists. Our audiences engage with risk-taking, formative moments that define artist careers. Gertrude Contemporary operates two sites, presenting major exhibitions at 21-31 High Street, Preston South, and solo projects by Gertrude Studio Artists at Gertrude Glasshouse, 44 Glasshouse Road Collingwood.
The Gertrude Contemporary exhibition program is presented at our primary galleries in Preston South. The program supports leading Australian and international artists to research, develop and present new projects that reflect the artistic, cultural, social and political issues of our times. The program celebrates Gertrude’s commitment to supporting solo projects that are artist driven and explore the diversity of contemporary artistic practice, as well as enabling platforms for curatorial experimentation by engaging with independent curators and developing internally generated projects.
