Artspace 24/25, exhibition at Artspace, Sydney, 2008. Curated by Blair French.

Artspace opened the doors of its first gallery premises in Randle St, Surry Hills in 1983. Twenty-five years on, Artspace looks forward to a prosperous future as one of Australia’s leading international studio residency-based contemporary art centres. To mark twenty-five years of operation Artspace presents a set of special projects: Twenty-four one-hour exhibitions. Twenty-five years of Artspace.

Twenty-four artists present one-hour solo exhibition projects. Accumulatively Artspace 24/25 provides an opportunity to engage with a diversity of contemporary practices – installation, performance, moving image, sculpture, photography, new media and painting. In keeping with twenty-five years of commitment to artistic experimentation, Artspace 24/25 treats the gallery as an active working space, a place in which artists think, intuit, experiment and make.
