Having been a stalwart of the Fitzroy community for 32 years, Gertrude Contemporary is upping sticks to a new location in Preston South. But before closing their Gertrude Street doors for the final time, a new exhibition titled The End of Time. The Beginning of Time. pays tribute to the building, the community and numerous talented artists that have all contributed to the organisation's admired legacy. This homage includes the re-presentation (or restaging) of admired exhibitions dating back to the 1980s, which trace the history and continued evolution of the gallery space. The tribute will reflect Gertrude Contemporary's rich and diverse history, while also utilising the gallery's expansive architectural and spatial arrangements.

Artists featured in the include Marco Fusinato and Mutlu Çerkez, DAMP, Geoff Newton, Noriko Nakamura, Anthony Hunt and Stephen Honneger, Nat and Ali, Natalie Thomas, Reko Rennie, Rose Nolan, Blair Trethowan, Mark Hilton, The Telepathy Project, Jon Campbell, Elizabeth Newman, Danius Kesminas, Sanja Pahoki, Nicholas Mangan and Damiano Bertoli.
