The 28 Leigh Street Gallery is a vibrant, flexible and modern exhibition space within a beautifully maintained heritage building in the heart of Adelaide. Located on one of the city’s busiest pedestrian streets, the Gallery offers great exposure to different displays throughout the year.

Commensurate with our core objectives, exhibitions should promote high-quality design in South Australia’s built environments and seek to inform the community of the value in doing so.

Our 2019 exhibition program is to provide a platform for upcoming initiatives within the design, architecture and related industries, and further celebrate the achievements of outstanding projects, professional bodies and organisations within our community.

If you are interested in exploring your idea for a temporary exhibition or installation, please contact the Office for Design and Architecture SA.
