Airspace Projects is an independent exhibition space in Marrickville, Sydney, run and programmed by Sally Clarke, artist and former College of Fine Arts, UNSW, lecturer and Brenda Factor, artist and director of the adjoining SquarePeg Studios. AirSpace Projects houses four exhibition spaces of varying sizes as well as an outdoor residency project space in a warehouse environment. We also have a really cool basement space for classes, workshops or seminars. People love the space!
AirSpace Projects is dedicated to exhibition and curatorial ideas from both established and emerging local, national and international practitioners who make ambitious, inspiring and inventive contributions to art processes and discourses. We aim to pursue both solo and thematically curated exhibitions to extend and deepen an understanding of artistic practice while facilitating a critical exploration of art and its relationship to the ever-changing world around us.
AirSpace Projects runs parallel events and performances as a way of bringing together a number of practices, activities and discourses at any one time. AirSpace Projects looks forward to continued growth and also aim to extend its activities to site-specific locations and participation in exchanges and residencies.
We are always open to hearing your ideas as to how our space can be used to artistic ends and to receiving exhibition, workshop and seminar proposals. This way we aim to keep AirSpace Projects dynamic and responsive to the arts community and it’s supporters.
Occasionally we will run workshops and events in our workshop area downstairs. Check sub-menu on this page to find out what’s on.

It takes a village …
AirSpace Projects is the success it is today because of all the fabulous artists who have exhibited here and/or who have contributed in some other way. Artists are compelled to create and share ideas; they commit considerable time to educating themselves and others about art, whether that be through self or institutional education; and they are prepared to take risks to express their ideas, whether that be financially, emotionally, politically and/or socially. It is magnificent that so many artists believe that art can play a role in creating fairer, healthier and more accepting and curious societies.
AirSpace Projects is a labour of love and we are lucky to have received support from many artists (and others) who have given up their time and energy to help us renovate, mind the space and to realise our projects. To name a few:
Painting: James Nguyen, Ciaran Begley, Veronica Habib, Janine Bailey and Beatrice
Wall building and gallery plans: Ciaran Begley
A bit more wall building: Uri Auerbach
Video editing for In Motion: Jacqui Mills
Invitation for In Motion: Sarah Eddowes
Gallery minding: Jan Fieldsend, Francesca Mataraga, Bailee Lobb
Outer Space residency initiation and transformation: Sarah Newall
Fridge donation and delivery: Sarah Newall and Jane Polkinghorne
Administrative and gallery assistance: Sara Sohrabian
Bar Girls and dishwasher donation: Kate Griew and Daph Pothin
Locker spotting and delivery assistance: Majella Beck
Acquisition of wine glasses and tumblers: Emily Copp
We would like to thank all our supporters and visitors, those who like to experience art and those who like to collect art. We value your efforts to spread the word about our space and the artists who show or perform their works here. If an artist has a price on their work it is incredibly affirming to make a sale. If you are wavering, we encourage you to take the plunge. When you buy a work of art you are investing in years of research and in an artist’s future.
Why not sponsor an exhibition? To enable us to pay the rent and overheads, exhibiting artists have to pay an exhibition fee. We would be thrilled to attract ethical sponsors who would be prepared to pay the full or partial exhibition fees on behalf of the artists. We are happy to discuss how this can be mutually beneficial. Just imagine. 🙏🙏🏻🙏🏼🙏🏽🙏🏾🙏🏿
