East Sydney Precinct

Located on the harbour front between Sydney’s main cultural tourist precinct — including the Art Gallery of NSW, Botanic Gardens and Sydney Opera House — and Kings Cross, Artspace is at the epicentre of what is now the burgeoning East Sydney Arts Precinct. Artspace connects the Art Gallery of NSW and artist-run spaces such as Firstdraft on the western side of the precinct with commercial galleries and UNSW | Art & Design and The National Art School to the east. 

 

Artspace has deep and expansive networks with like-minded organisations, collaborators and supporters, who are keen to access and connect with the most important contemporary art and ideas being created. By collaborating with supporters and organisations, Artspace can share knowledge and resources to provide audiences with opportunities to connect with Australia’s artists at all stages of their careers.  

 

Organisations currently operating in the reinvogorated East Sydney Precinct include the Art Gallery of NSW, Firstdraft, Object: Australian Design Centre, the Australian Museum, Chalk Horse Gallery, Minerva, Gallery 9, Alaska Projects and The Cross Art Projects.
