Gertrude Contemporary is an exhibition and studio complex located in Preston South. Gertrude Contemporary was designed by award-winning architects at Edition Office.
Gertrude Contemporary's exhibition spaces are a beautiful venue that can accommodate small groups of up to 30 for meetings and larger groups of up to 100 in a cocktail style arrangement. The space is available for commercial venue hire arrangements including: meetings, launches or cocktail events.
Events are held within the setting of our engaging program of contemporary art exhibitions featuring both Australian and International artists. Our exhibition program for the year can be found on our website. Due to the nature of some exhibitions venue hire may not be available - We ask that you give us as much notice as possible to negotiate with exhibiting artists. Outside of the exhibition program (Dec-Jan) there are opportunities for more flexible commercial venue hire arrangements.
We will not accomodate 18th, 21st or 30th birthday parties and music events with the use of amplified sound systems.
Please note that catering and related hire and staffing costs are not included in the price. Additional costs may be incurred depending on event requirements - please contact us for a complete quote for your event
Gertrude Contemporary has a limited liquor licence for events - Tuesday to Saturday 5:30 - 8:30pm. Events that fall outside of our licence parameters can be negotiated, but incur an additional fee to cover the cost of the temporary licence extension.
