La Trobe Art Institute

Galleries, Museums and Collections

La Trobe Art Institute is La Trobe University’s centre for contemporary art, curatorial practice and cultural collections. They work with artists and partners around the globe to present leading contemporary art in Central Victoria.

Situated in Bendigo’s View Street arts precinct, alongside cafes and restaurants and opposite Bendigo Art Gallery, the award-winning premises were designed by architect Peter Elliot. They include gallery spaces, a tiered auditorium, artist’s studio, apartment, meeting room, common area and outdoor courtyards. They offer arts experiences (exhibitions, films), education programs (professional development, internships) and cultural events (talks and forums) that inspire community advocacy and debate.

With art and artists at the centre of everything they do, they give expression to links between research, student experience, industry, community and geography. As both physical site and growing network, partnerships with artistic, academic and wider communities are key to their programs.
