Gertrude Contemporary

Architect: Edition Office

North | N05

Gertrude Contemporary is a not-for-profit visual-arts organisation that has been building the careers of contemporary Australian artists through its exhibition and studio programs for over 30 years. Gertrude Contemporary launched its new building – designed by architects Edition Office – in Preston South in July 2017. The building was constructed in 1983 and historically operated as a retail furniture showroom. The large, open-span building provided a flexible shell within which custom-made spaces could be created for Gertrude’s artistic program, including its exhibition galleries and 16 artist studios for its two-year studio program. The fit-out design supports porosity and communality within the studio program, and exhibition spaces that are expansive, versatile, and considerate of how Gertrude supports the full and expanding range of artistic practices.
