Wagner Contemporary opened in 2016. The gallery is conveniently located in the heart of the Paddington Arts Precinct, which promotes the quality and diversity of Australian and International artistic practice. Their vision reflects a strong focus on early career artists, boasting a stable of leading contemporary artists, including a strong component of female artists, each pushing their practice across a range of media and genres.
Nadine Wagner, a second-generation gallerist and the Gallery Director, is strongly committed to and passionate about presenting exciting early career artists and high calibre solo exhibitions by Australian artists on a monthly basis. Her vision follows a continuum of thought which has informed 25-years of gallery management and directorship. Many of the gallery’s artists are represented in national, State and regional collections and are frequently represented in major art prizes and awards.
