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.
Artspace's office is temporarily located in B24 at National Art School (NAS), 156 Forbes St, Darlinghurst.
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.

Touring | Just Not Australian
'Just Not Australian' presents work by Australian artists at the forefront of national debate and practice. This exhibition brings together 20 artists across generations and diverse cultural backgrounds to deal broadly with the origins and implications of contemporary Australian nationhood.
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.
