For the past fifteen years Linden has been presenting, with the
assistance of the City of Port Phillip, an annual exhibition aimed
at showcasing the best of contemporary Indigenous Australian art
and promoting it to as broad an audience as possible.
These exhibitions and associated programs have been
professionally presented, promoted to a broad Indigenous and
non-Indigenous audience and have often led to major acquisitions,
commissions, overseas residencies or other significant
opportunities for the artists involved.
In 2008 Linden received funding from the Sidney Myer
Fund to develop and expand its Contemporary Indigenous Art
Program which involved employing a young Indigenous Curator. This
funding was continued in 2009 through the generous support of the
Lord Mayors Charitable Trust. In 2010 the Helen
MacPherson Smith Trust supported the exhibition and tour of Jus'
Drawn by the collective proppaNOW. NETS Victoria will be touring
Linden's annual contemporary Indigenous art exhibition throughout
