GERTRUDE STUDIOS 2002
Gertrude Studios 2002, part of a flagship project in the organisation’s annual exhibition program, presented the work of artists who have held studios at Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces over the preceeding year. Among the most talented of their generation, these artists had already begun to make important contributions to Melbourne’s visual arts culture. The annual studio artists’ exhibition and accompanying publication reflects the strength and diversity of art practices at Gertrude Contemporary, with innovative and experimental practices across a diverse range of disciplines including painting, sculpture, video, installation and new media. Generously supported by Transurban and Loti Smorgon AO, the exhibition was accompanied by an Open Studio Day and well represented through mainstream and specialist print and radio coverage.
