About Kensington Contemporary

Kensington Contemporary officially opened in September 2015 and has continued to feature an array of talented artists from both the emerging and established arts scene.

Gallery founder and Director Nicky Ginsberg, former director of NG Art Gallery has dedicated over 25 years to invigorating Chippendale as an arts, food and lifestyle destination for Sydney.

She is the founder of the Chippendale Creative Precinct and the BEAMS Festival Director.

The gallery actively promotes a diverse range of traditional and contemporary mediums that include painting, photography, digital works, sculpture, printmaking, and other works on paper.

Kensington Contemporary is situated in the middle of the vibrant and lively Kensington Street in the heart of Chippendale, and regularly presents fresh and exciting exhibitions for the public to enjoy. It is conveniently located, only a short walk from both Redfern and Central station.

The space is situated in a row of beautifully refurbished historical terrace houses, which provide the perfect home to present to our guests.

Foremost, Kensington Contemporary is intent on inspiring artists to harness their creative energy and inspire both fellow artists and art lovers alike. The gallery is an integral part of the Chippendale Creative Precinct, an organisation that offers a myriad of cultural experiences including gallery and historical tours, prestigious yet relaxed dining experiences and hosts regular festivals that get the whole city talking.

Kensington Contemporary is one of the many intrinsic elements that together, makes the thriving cultural network which is Chippendale Creative Precinct.
