visiting curators

The Visiting Curator Program is an initiative in which an invited international curator undertakes an extended residency in Gertrude's Studio 18. During this period, Gertrude Contemporary facilitates a series of studio visits and meetings with artists and professionals involved in the Australian contemporary arts sector. The aim of the Visiting Curators Program is to open new opportunities for Australian artists to locate their work in an international context, and for international curators to establish ongoing, in-depth relationships with Australian peers and networks.

Gertrude Contemporary aims to invite up to three international curators to Australia each year, the duration of the residency is between two weeks to two months and there is no structured outcome required. These residencies receive support from Arts Victoria International or the Australia Council for the Arts. Gertrude Contemporary welcomes our Visiting Curators to Sydney in partnership with Sherman Contemporary Arts Foundation.
