Gertrude has been building the careers of Australia’s artists for over 30 years.
Since our establishment in 1985, Gertrude has played an essential role in the visual arts sector, shaping the careers for many of Australia’s most celebrated artists. We are an incubator and launching pad for early-practice and mid-career artists. Our artistic program – including our studio and exhibition program – is unique in its equal emphasis on the production and presentation of contemporary art. This enables us to support artists to explore new ideas and present risk-taking work at pivotal points in their careers.
Gertrude gives audiences unique insight into the creative development of artists. Our audiences engage with risk-taking, formative moments that define artists’ careers.
