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.
