Our Story

Boom is a vibrant and active contemporary art and design gallery. We present the work of emerging and established artists, designers and makers.

Launched by Ren Inei and Kate Jacoby in 2011, Boom exhibits original art and design by local, interstate and International artists, designers and makers. 

Boom continues to grow and evolve, both physically and conceptually, enriching the cultural fibre of Geelong.

Our wonderful team includes: 

Ren Inei and Kate Jacoby - Gallery Directors 

Dylan Foley - Exhibitions Manager & Curator

and Alichia van Rhijn - Gallery Manager.

Boom and Big Boom are housed in a historic former woollen mill on Rutland Street in Newtown. We present monthly exhibitions of original art across both sites, open 7 days a week. Our dynamic stockroom is accessible to the public and we have an incredible selection of handmade jewellery, ceramics and design objects.
