Clement Meadmore Gallery

First Floor 220 Ingles Street, Port Melbourne VIC 3207
Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday from 9am – 5pm


The gallery seeks to establish the Clement Meadmore Gallery as a dynamic, innovative and experimental site.  With a focus on contemporary art practices our vision is to become a centre for excellence through the presentation of contemporary visual culture which looks forward to new innovations, ideas, and contributions to enhance the cultural and intellectual lives of students, staff, faculty and the wider community.   The gallery offers a platform for artists and practitioners to develop and showcase new ideas in a critically engaging and supportive environment. It aims to create an environment that encourages cultural development, pedagogy, and acts as a platform for meaningful connections between students, professional artists and academics.


The Clement Meadmore Foundation

The main exhibition gallery was named in honour of the designer and, arguably, father of Australian sculpture, Clement Meadmore. Known worldwide for his monumental steel and aluminium sculptures, Meadmore moved to New York where he worked until he died in 2005. The Clement Meadmore Foundation has approved the naming of the gallery.

The Clement Meadmore Foundation has also donated a Meadmore sculpture design for fabrication and installation at the Academy of Design. A benefactor is being sought for the funding of the sculpture. The Academy is a Registered Charitable Organisation and a Deductible Gift Recipient recognised by the Australian Tax Office so that gifts and donations are fully tax deductable. If you would like to contribute to the fund for the sculpture please contact the Gallery Manager at gallery@designacademy.edu.au

If you would like to be placed on the gallery’s mailing list for invitations to exhibitions please email the Gallery Manager at: gallery@designacademy.edu.au or phone the Academy at 03 9676 9000.
