This month .M Contemporary Woollahra expands its reach, opening Bondi’s first Fine Art gallery at The Pacific. From 4 November to end of February 2017 .M Contemporary will attract beachgoers with a vibrant gallery full of cutting-edge contemporary artists.
.M Contemporary Bondi will open with a group show of artists including photographers Justin Dingwall, Gerwyn Davies and Simone Rosenbauer, plus works by light sculptor Aly Indermühle. Operating Wednesday to Sunday, the gallery is designed as a great summer holiday space for high-street consumers to explore.
Bondi Beach’s Gould Street, which runs parallel to Campbell Parade has recently welcomed a slew of hot new retail outlets indulging; Aesop, Jac + Jack, Totem Road, Venroy, and Saturdays NYC. These slick new operations further add to the lustre of the shopping precinct, which attracts upwardly mobile pleasure seekers from the Eastern Suburbs. Now .M Contemporary adds to this urban mix, by setting up Bondi’s first Fine Art gallery at the base of The Pacific Bondi Beach. The new site is easily accessible via the QT Hotel on Campbell Parade, or from the driveway next to Saturday’s NYC on Gould Street.
.M Contemporary Woollahra, is a cross-cultural art gallery that was established on Ocean Street in August 2013. .M Contemporary Bondi, is the second space for gallery Founder and Director Michelle Paterson who says her expansion, seeks to build on her well established client list, while capturing new collectors where they reside. She believes the pivot in Bondi Beach retail from Nandos and General Pants, to more refined and minimalist stores, reflects resident’s increasingly sophisticated tastes. Paterson sites Bondi’s rising property prices and the young professional audience, as some of the major changes she has witnessed in the area.
“Bondi is home to a rich tapestry of residents well versed in fine art photography, design and lifestyle luxury,” says .M Contemporary Founder and Director Michelle Paterson. “Residents are very well travelled home makers who appreciate the finer things in life. .M Contemporary Bondi offers them a choice of acclaimed artists to complement their tastes and to help them curate interiors in their homes and offices,” Paterson says.
The pop up will run alongside the full program of events at the first gallery in Woollahra.
