The Contemporary Touch Of Sutton Gallery

A white space is all you need. The empty canvas for an artist to dream upon and for the audience to experience. Sutton Gallery is that empty canvas, that pure white space, made for some of Australia and New Zealand’s best contemporary artists, award-winning exhibits, and incredible creative experiences.

From the street, this gallery looks ancient. That old Victorian architecture, red brick and classic Melbourne facade stick out like a sore thumb in the heart of Fitzroy. Tucked into the corner of bustling Brunswick street and Greeves street, right opposite Melbourne’s Blackcat, Sutton Gallery has more than established itself as one of Fitzroy’s finest looks into the imaginations of the contemporary.

The gallery opened its doors in 1992. Since then it has staged a continuous monthly program of solo and group exhibitions. Works range from photography, digital, painting, installations and more. The exhibits take on subjects from the extreme to the cerebral, questioning philosophies, humanity and both past and future.

It is a true delight to the inner north that such a place exists. There are risks taken within these walls. Artists from all walks of life and experiences dive into the essence of society, community, history, and our place within. Incredible talent is scouted and housed by the gallery, a true passion and knowledge is borne here, and we are thrilled to recommend you take a wander.

Jackson Slattery Best Forgotten

Image Via Sutton Gallery Website

From 11 June – 3 July 2021.

“For this exhibition, Slattery has focused on remnants of the dematerialised art movements of the late 20th century including documentation, flyers and other ephemera. He identifies how these materials, which both preceded and outlasted the transitory acts themselves, have become codified references in art history.”
