Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces

Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces


Gertrude Contemporary offers a range of residency programs for visiting international and interstate, artists and curators. Itprovides professional support to artists in the early stages of their careers through exhibition, studio and associated cultural exchange and public programs which address the relationship between contemporary art practices and current critical debate. They aim to continually evolve alongside the art and artists it supports, whilst providing a stimulating environment for contemporary art production, presentation, research and the exchange of ideas between artists and audiences nationally and internationally.

As part of Gertrude Contemporary’s residency program the organisation facilitates a Visiting Curator Program in partnership with Arts Victoria and the Australia Council. The Visiting Curators Program is by invitation and curators undertake a program of studio and gallery visits, engaging with local artists and ideas with a view to establishing new networks and conversations internationally.

In addition Gertrude Contemporary has reciprocal residency exchanges with several international contemporary art spaces including Firestation, Dublin and National Arts Council and Incubator, Singapore. These residencies offer studio artists from each art space the opportunity to undertake exchange residencies at the partnering institutions.
