Artspace's home since 1993, The Gunnery building, is currently being transformed into a landmark multi-platform contemporary art centre with expanded exhibition spaces, increased artist studios and greater connections to Woolloomooloo, the East Sydney precinct and Sydney Harbour Foreshore. During this period of redevelopment our expanded offsite program includes National and Regional Exhibition tours, International Partnerships and Co-commissions.
The Gunnery building is currently closed for redevelopment and Artspace will reopen 15 December 2023.
The transformation of The Gunnery building will directly support artists of all generations to realise ambitious projects and will increase Artspace's capacity to connect with audiences and communities locally, regionally, nationally, internationally and online.

Artspace is pleased to announce Wiradyuri and Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones will present the inaugural exhibition at Artspace at The Gunnery when it reopens from Friday 15 December 2023 – 11 February 2024, before the exhibition tours nationally. Jones’s exhibition untitled (transcriptions of country) explores colonial transport, trade and the acclimatisation of Indigenous plants, animals and objects along with the colonisation of local knowledge.
Ever changing, ever challenging, Artspace is where audiences encounter the artists and the ideas of our times.
We show our respect and acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.
We pay our respects to their Elders past and present and their descendants.
