Laurent Gallery

Type of space: Cinema, Music Performance Venue, Art Gallery

    We are so glad you found us!

    We just launched a bright new Art Space. It's called The Laurent Gallery and is situated in South Melbourne, just on the edge of the industrial district, 10 mins from the CBD.

    The gallery consists of 4 spaces connected to each other. It is perfect for solo exhibitions but can easily work as a group exhibition space if you would like to exhibit with one or some of your fellow artist and share the costs.

    We also have a small cafe in the Gallery 3 which generates daily traffic and encourages people to stay longer, to appreciate your work, which means more chance to market your master pieces and more sales for you !

    The space we have created is designed to suit many different projects. We are creative and flexible and we love to customise the space to satisfy your needs, dreams and budget.

    There are two ways to rent the space, either as a hire space or for a fully curated exhibition.  As a hire space, you can organise your exhibition the way you want.  Of course we are there to help with lighting, hanging, etc.

    Curated exhibitions are perfect if you just want to bring your paintings and leave the rest to us. We will professionally curate you exhibition from A to Z. Just bring your art work, invite your friends and come for the opening.

    So, be our guest, come for a coffee, visit the gallery and lets have a chat. You can park at the back so no need to search for parking. If you prefer you can call me directly via the red 'Show Number' button.  I am the art Director of Laurent Gallery and I am also an artist so together we will figure out what are the best options for your show. 

    As soon as we have a precise idea of what you want, date, style, and budget, our administrator and exhibition technician, Jonathon Miller will begin to transform your vision into reality.


    The Laurent Gallery is a new contemporary art space located just a stone throw from CBD and from Port Melbourne Beach. Situated on the edge of South Melbourne’s industrial area, it is a haven of art, peace and culture. The gllaery also runs a small café which encourages art lovers to stay a bit longer and enjoy a gourmet cup of coffee.

    Curatorial Exhibition

    The Curatorial Exhibition is designed to make your life easy. Deliver your art work on the Wednesday and we'll have a chat about your ideas. We curate, hang and adjust the lighting. Your job is to rock up on Thursday night for the opening and enjoy. We'll look after the exhibition for you from there on in, dealing with all enquiries and sales.

    The Opening Night Catering includes wine, carbonated water, staff, glasses and cleaning. You will be responsible for any food.

    We take care of all aspects of the Catalogue. Just supply us with the name, size, medium and price of each piece and your artistic statement and we take care of the rest.

    Hire Exhibition

    The Hire Exhibition is designed for emerging artists who are looking for a more affordable option and don't mind doing some of the leg work themselves. The good news is that we still look after all enquiries and sales, so you don't need to be here for the entire exhibition.
