Artspace Sydney - Woolloomooloo


Artspace is where audiences meet the artists and the ideas of these times.

Artspace was established in 1983 as an artist-run contemporary art space dedicated to the presentation of contemporary and experimental art in a critical context. In response to ever-increasing demand for space by artists, Artspace relocated in 1992 to their current location at the Gunnery in Woolloomooloo; a site renowned for its rich history as a former naval facility and then later in the 1970s as an artists' squat that hosted studios, performances, and exhibitions.

Since this time, Artspace has become a recognised site for the production and presentation of visual arts in an expanded field, with an emphasis on the creation of new work. Across their platforms, Artspace encourages new ideas, risk, and experimentation. Independent, not-for-profit, non-collecting, critically engaged, collaborative, and curatorially driven, Artspace is focused on supporting the development and presentation of contemporary art.
