Geelong Contemporary

Geelong Contemporary was formed in 2016 to support the growth and presentation of Geelong Gallery’s acclaimed collection of contemporary art, through advocacy, engagement and fundraising.

Geelong Contemporary is a group of external contemporary art enthusiasts and collectors driven by its own core collective, supported by the Geelong Gallery Director and key staff. Geelong Contemporary is a fundraising and support arm for the Geelong Gallery.

Geelong Contemporary engages with the Gallery and its commitment to contemporary Australian art through an annual program of events and exclusive opportunities including an annual soirée in February and a series of talking art lectures during the year. 

Geelong Contemporary is based on an agreed annual financial commitment by supporters specifically for the acquisition of works of art and/or to present the work of contemporary artists as part of a renewed exhibition program.
