Description

LINDEN NEW ART is a public gallery that specializes in displaying new contemporary art.

The gallery opened to the public in 1986 and is located in the seaside suburb of St Kilda. Housed in a Victorian mansion, Linden’s grand domestic building makes it a unique place to see, explore and discuss contemporary art. Our annual exhibition program features work from artists across Australia and overseas. Exhibitions change every eight weeks and are supported by a range of dynamic programs to allow for visitors to learn about, debate and question contemporary art. Opportunities to and meet artists and curators are regular features of our programs.

ABOUT THE BUILDING

Linden’s grand Victorian architecture was commissioned by Moritz Michaelis in the mid 1800s. Michaelis arrived in Australia in 1853 and set up a successful business during Melbourne Gold Rush.

The architect AF Kursteiner designed the two storied mansion to be a grand family residence. It was built between 1855 and 1885. The curator of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne, William Guilfoyle designed the extensive gardens that originally surrounded the property.     

The house remained in the Michaelis family for many decades and in 1957 the Michaelis family sold the house and it became a private hotel known as Linden Court.

Linden Court was operated by migrants Theodour and Alice van Veenendaal until it was sold to council. In 1983 it was purchased by the St Kilda City Council and Linden Arts Centre and Gallery were   opened in late 1986.

02 December 2019 • LINDEN POSTCARD SHOW LOCAL'S EVENING

We enjoyed a delightful visit to the Linden Postcard Show Locals’ Evening. The venue is stunning, the warm hospitality appreciated and there was a wonderful variety of art to explore. We especially enjoyed the curator’s tour and discussion of some of the entries including the winners. Thanks for a great night.

Linden is a wonderful local gallery recently renovated and a beautiful space for exhibitions. The current Postcard exhibition is a must. Highly recommend a visit.

30 November 2019 • OPENING INVITATION > LINDEN POSTCARD SHOW 2019-20

This is the first time I exhibited in this gallery. The opening was lively and obviously very popular. As a “newbie” to Melbourne, it was a very pleasant surprise. I will definitely exhibit here again.
