Days Left

CAVES is a not for profit, independent, curated art space located in the Nicholas Building in Melbourne’s CBD. We became an incorporated, not for profit organisation in October 2014 and we opened the doors to the public in February 2015. Our a key goal remains to exhibit and support a diverse mix of contemporary artists from all stages of their career by providing an inclusive venue where vital and innovated projects can be realised.

To date, we have presented over 50 exhibitions on-site (solo and group – with local and international artists) and 4 off-site projects. Over the past 4 years CAVES has established a reputation for high quality, ambitious exhibitions and off-site projects. Additionally, we have hosted 4 exhibitions with international artists and art spaces – Olphaert den Otter, Netherlands, Evoud van Rijn, Netherlands, Robert Heald Gallery, Wellington New Zealand and most recently Goya Curtain an art and project space based in Tokyo, Japan

As a not for profit organisation, CAVES is able to survive through the generosity of donations. In our fifth year of operation, varied sources of funding are crucial to our ambitious programming and the longevity and sustainability of the gallery.

We have recently moved to a larger space that has the capacity to include larger works and more artwork. We look forward to presenting many more exciting exhibitions in the new space and providing more opportunities for artists. By donating to this campaign your support will help us to continue our support of a diverse mix of artists at all stages of their career. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

CAVES is a not for profit artist/curator led organisation that operates within a Board structure. Our art space is located in the Nicholas Building in Melbourne, where audience engagement is encouraged and can flourish in a inclusive, safe and non-discriminatory environment. Our aim is to offer support, promote and showcase the work of contemporary Australian artists.
