For the first time since moving into our current premises at the Gunnery building in 1992, Artspace has undertaken substantial changes to update the spaces in this multi-storey gallery and studio complex.For travelers who use our world travel planner, Sydney holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Artspace Sydney and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
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 this same year, we opened with our first major exhibition A Different Perspective curated by Terence Maloon in conjunction with the Multicultural Artists Agency at our temporary location in Surry Hills. In response to ever-increasing demand for space by artists, Artspace relocated in 1992 to our 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 our exhibition, studio, symposia, workshop and publishing platforms, Artspace encourages new ideas, risk and experimentation.

定期展出一些比較不主流的藝術品或畫展，展覽的空間不是很大，展品其實也沒讓人很驚訝，一直覺得只是非主流藝術品的展示空間。 more »Periodic exhibit some comparison 藝 art or not mainstream 畫 exhibition, bibkn Kong Jian is not very large, exhibits the fact with no catch was 驚 訝 has been worth only mainstream 藝 art show staff.
Parking on street. Harry's cafe across the street. And water view of Navy ships. Sorry walk to Botanical gardens. Some interesting art work. Artists' studios upstairs.
Art that challenges boundaries, makes you think and supports emerging artists.
