Cement Fondu acknowledges the Gadigal and Bidjigal people of the Eora nation as the sovereign custodians of the unceded land on which we are based. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
Cement Fondu is an evolving arts space located in Paddington, Sydney. We present a diverse year-round program of visual arts exhibitions that feature performance, dance and music by Australian and international artists. Our Art Store, Project Space, online presence and program of public events offer alternative and engaging ways for people to encounter artists and their practices.
Dedicated to greater understanding and creative possibilities, we serve a collective curiosity toward each other and the matters of our time.
