Hillvale Gallery

Hillvale Gallery is an artist-run space that aims to support, elevate and exhibit emerging local artists working in the area of photography and lens-based image making.

In 2013 we started Hillvale Photo, our dedicated photo lab, and since then we’ve met many amazing photographers. Hillvale Photo was built by photographers for photographers and this is the same approach we aim to bring to our gallery — a space that supports our values at the lab, including affordability, accessibility and enabling photographers a place to express their practice.

Previous shows include Sarah Pannell’s Tabriz to Shiraz (2019) and Ryan Cookson’s Tell Them About Me (2019). We’ve held group exhibitions such as Dysturb’s Where I Lay My Head (2017) and Hillvale’s Keep The Fire Burning (2018), and launched projects such as the Flat Film Archive (2017). We’ve also supported Photography Studies College and the Centre for Multicultural Youth with space for graduate shows and creative development.

Hillvale acknowledges and pays respect to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which Hillvale is built and operates. We pay our respect to Elders both past, present and future and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded.
