Artspace Visual Arts Centre - Woolloomooloo
Artspace Visual Arts Centre is a leading international residency-based contemporary art centre, housed in the historic Gunnery Building in Woolloomooloo fronting Sydney Harbour.
Artspace is committed to the development of new ideas and practices in contemporary art and culture. Artspace prioritises the ideas and practices of artists and fosters the development of challenging new installation-based work, including projects in video, performance, sound, interactive and other forms of developing technologies. Through public program, education and publication activities, Artspace explores critical contexts for contemporary art and encourages examination of the diverse social, political and visual processes that shape Australian culture within both regional and global frameworks.
Each year Artspace presents around 20 gallery projects; hosts over 50 artist residencies; initiates a range of public program and education activities; and publishes Column, a regular Artspace periodical as well as cultural theory books and artist monographs.
