Ideas Platform

Artspace re-launched in 2015 with the Ideas Platform; a space that was once used for storage that has now been redeveloped into a flexible, adaptive public-facing space for exhibitions, conversations, performances and lectures. New developments such as the ‘Ideas Platform’ are important examples of Artspace’s capacity to provide spaces and platforms for artists to test new ideas, forms and strategies. By remaining responsive to artists and audiences, Artspace continues to demonstrate its capacity to contribute significantly to the artistic vibrancy of Australia. 

 

Conceived as a totally adaptive program space consciously situated at the entrance to the organisation, the Ideas Platform serves as a testing ground for experimental, open-­ended and expanded creative practice. It is a space for risk and speculation underpinned by the simple concept that if you have an idea, we have a platform. With a program focused on process as much if not more than outcome, the Ideas Platform will present a spectrum of projects from artists’ books and independent publishing initiatives, to occupations, performances, workshops, screenings, discussions and socially ­engaged and collaborative practices. Artspace acknowledges the generous support of Andrew Cameron AM and Cathy Cameron for the establishment of the Ideas Platform.
