1. PROPOSAL CALLOUT 2018

Exhibition proposals for 2018 are now being accepted from artists and curators. We welcome both previous exhibitors and newcomers and are open to a broad range of ideas. We do rely on an artist-pay system to keep the gallery afloat, however, we have a free courtyard non-live-in residency (minimum 3 months) that can form part of the exhibition program if you have any interest in transforming this space. We also welcome workshop and seminar ideas for the basement area.

If you have exhibited or curated at AirSpace Projects in the past and would like to exhibit with us again then please email us.

We continue to accept proposals throughout the year. Occasionally, we like to curate or organise a show ourselves so be sure to let us know what you’re up to.

On this page you will find images of our four galleries along with space plans. The Gallery Agreement and Exhibition Proposal Form is available by clicking the links below. If you have any further questions please feel free to email Sally Clarke or to make an appointment to discuss your ideas further.

AirSpace Projects has been established with the aim of exhibiting new and experimental work that explores the boundaries between different modes of art practice. We are also interested in exhibiting work that reflects a sustained inquiry in any medium or media and has strong conceptual underpinnings. We aim to showcase the work of international and established Australian artists alongside emerging practices in an effort to engage artists and audiences in a range of inter-generational, cross-cultural and trans-disciplinary dialogues.

Artist Sarah Newall has established the courtyard, Outer Space, as free project space for artists with her ongoing sustainability project. If you have any ideas that you think would add to her project why not talk to us?
