Let’s face it. The art world in Australia is pretty small. And most who are engaged with the visual arts sector will have at some point worked in The Gunnery at Woolloomooloo (Sydney), stayed there as a resident artist or have frequented exhibitions at Artspace.
It is this very sense of community and connection – not to mention an ecology’s history – that has been at the heart of the redevelopment of Artspace. This weekend, the organisation will throw open its doors in a program of celebration.
