The Hold, opening night of Renata Buziak exhibition.

In celebration of Brisbane’s vibrant arts scene, we have collated a list of various galleries, ARI’s and alternative exhibition spaces in Brisbane. They range from larger galleries and institutions, contemporary exhibition spaces and commercial galleries, to artist run spaces, studios and cafes. Take note, not all the local Artist Run Initiatives have a permanent exhibition space, however are open to collaboration with artists and performers. Artists can contact an ARI personally to organise shows and events. Please also note that some of the commercial galleries may only exhibit their represented artists.

We hope the list will only expand as more and more exhibition spaces open up in the future. If you believe we’ve missed out on a few places, or if you hear of another one opening before we do, email us at or a Facebook message to the QCP, and we will add them to the list. We aim for this list to be a reliable resource for artists and photographers wishing to exhibit in Brisbane.
