Clayton Utz and the Arts
Clayton Utz has a number of exciting initiatives that demonstrate our pride as an Australian firm committed to the cultural sector, and the broader creative communities in which we live and work.
A great artist sees what others don't, and then is brave enough to share that by creating something new that moves, provokes, and inspires others.
That sounds pretty confident, incisive and engaging to us.
It's no wonder we're drawn to Australia's thinkers and creators, who make connections, and imagine what could be. And we're proud of what we're achieving together in three exciting projects.

Each exhibition presents an opportunity to showcase the work of
two contemporary artists in the offices of Clayton Utz. Our exhibition
space offers a unique visual art experience for clients to get up
close and personal with an amazing array of artwork. The uniquely
curated program allows both artists to explore and display their work
in one of Australia's leading corporate environments. Guests visiting
the exhibition will have an opportunity to explore the artwork in an
intimate and innovative environment.
Complementing the exhibition is an Artist-in-Residence
experience within the Clayton Utz offices. This opportunity provides
both artists and Clayton Utz a collaborative platform to explore the
artistic process and allows us and our clients exclusive access to the
artist and the creative process.
The Clayton Utz Art Partnership is a truly exciting initiative
and demonstrates our pride as an Australian firm committed to the
cultural sector, and the broader creative communities in which we live
and work. We hope you enjoy being part of it.
