19 Karen Contemporary Artspace was launched as a commercial Contemporary Art gallery in August 2008.

19 Karen Contemporary Artspace is dedicated to discovering cutting-edge emerging Australian and international artists with exceptional and diverse talent to shock and excite you. Our stable of artists consists of emerging, mid-career, and established artists.

The gallery showcases solo and group exhibitions six times a year. During our solo shows and opening nights, space permitting, our remaining artists are given the opportunity to have their work on display on a rotating basis. Adjacent to the gallery is an extensive stockroom for private viewing.

The gallery is located in a converted warehouse, tucked away in an industrial street of the same name and number—19 Karen Avenue. It is centrally located less than 500 meters from the Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, and is just behind Pacific Square in Mermaid Beach.
