Cooee Art Gallery


Presenting ethically sourced art from Australian Indigenous communities for over 40 years.

Cooee Art is Australia’s oldest exhibiting Indigenous art gallery. Since first working with Aboriginal artists in 1981, it has presented the finest First Nations art through exhibitions and events in Australia, Europe, and the Americas. With more than 3000 works of art by over 150 individual artists, its extensive stockroom encompasses a wide range of regional and individual styles. The collection includes rare bark paintings and artefacts, early desert boards and acrylic paintings, and an exciting range of contemporary Aboriginal paintings, sculpture, limited edition fine art prints. Cooee Art is now located in two beautiful, yet distinctly different galleries - a conveniently located contemporary exhibiting space in Redfern’s designer precinct, and a boutique collector’s destination gallery and consultancy just a short walk from Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach. Together, they offer a unique and informative insight into the world of Australian Aboriginal art. As well as sourcing historically significant pieces, Directors Adrian Newstead OAM and Mirri Leven, along with their highly knowledgeable staff, obtain contemporary artworks from Indigenous communities across the continent for their diverse range of projects. An impressive international profile, developed over 40 years’ experience, makes Cooee Art one of the most highly respected Indigenous galleries in Australia and abroad. Its clients include private collectors, institutions, architects, interior designers, and international visitors. Our regular exhibition program includes solo shows by important living artists and thematic curated exhibitions.
