Gertrude Studios 2023: Gertrude Contemporary

Ezz Monem

11 Nov - 17 Dec 2023

Gertrude’s annual studios exhibition presents new and recent works produced in the organisation’s studios, and celebrates the site as a conduit for dialogue and making.

As a collective snapshot of the practices supported within the program, this exhibition offers the opportunity to experience a broad diversity of works from leading arts practitioners in Naarm Melbourne, as well as examine material and conceptual developments in contemporary practice.

The exhibition is conceived across the year by the Gertrude Studio Artists and the Curator in Residence Amelia Winata, providing a chance for the Studio Artists to experiment with divergent ideas or reflect on recent productions in new configurations, all in conversation with the work of fellow practitioners.

The exhibition features work from Gertrude’s Studio Artists, displayed across all of the galleries at Preston South. Gertrude would like to acknowledge and thank our generous supporters, patrons, sponsors, and programming partners whose support enables us to continue building the careers of Australia’s contemporary artists.
