LAI Gallery Bendigo

Located directly opposite Bendigo Art Gallery and the Capital Theatre, the LAI gallery is a multipurpose visual arts facility. The award winning building, designed by architect Peter Elliott, features two galleries, two sculpture courtyards, a tiered auditorium, meeting room and an artist-in-residence apartment and studio. There is a strong indoor outdoor relationship between spaces which provides a dynamic setting for staff, students, visiting artists and the public.

The striking facade features artist Ash Keating's Gravity Response System #1 (diptych), 2015.

In addition to an exhibition program that seeks to present cutting edge contemporary visual art, the LAI engages with the community through a public lecture program, artist floor talks and education programs.
