Linden New Art aims to be a centre of creative excellence. As a home for new art, we are open to bold ideas, to different ways of experiencing and seeing the world and oneself. We have established a strong reputation as a leading public gallery that focuses on presenting new Contemporary Art.
Linden encourages looking at new art, experiencing new ideas and promotes new ways of thinking by providing starting points for conversations about the world we inhabit. We believe this role is an important part of contemporary art and we aim to foster a curious audience that is open to engaging with new thinking and sometimes challenging viewpoints.
The diverse exhibition program encourages audiences to engage with Australia’s visual culture in a welcoming gallery space. This environment, combined with the historic setting, provides a unique space in which to host your special event.
