Gertrude Studios 2022. Gertrude Contemporary

Gertrude’s annual Gertrude Studios exhibition presents new and recent works produced in the organisation’s 16 studios and celebrates the site as a conduit for dialogue and making. As a collective snapshot of the practices supported within the program, the 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 Tim Riley Walsh, 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 each of Gertrude’s seventeen current Studio Artists, displayed across all of the galleries at Preston South.
