Melbourne Art Fair exhibition sectors Galleries and Accent present 40 new and established galleries from Australia, New Zealand and the region exhibiting a diverse range of artists and curatorial themes through solo presentations and group shows of closely related works.
The Project Rooms returns to Melbourne Art Fair in 2018 as a non-profit platform for cutting edge art spaces presenting experimental work within the context of a major visual arts event.
This year, Project Rooms, presented by Four Pillars and supported by Melbourne Art Foundation, features presentations from the Institute of Modern Art (Brisbane), The Physics Room (Christchurch), Gertrude Contemporary (Melbourne) and Blak Dot Gallery (Melbourne).
In 2018, Melbourne Art will debut TIME, a site-specific video sector curated by Hannah Mathews (Senior Curator, Monash University Museum of Art) and Rachel Ciesla (Curator and Administrator, Galleries and Programs, Melbourne Art Foundation). Unveiling a selection of new and recent works by Michaela Gleave (represented by Anna Pappas Gallery, Melbourne), Jess Johnson (represented by Darren Knight Gallery, Sydney), Sriwhana Spong (represented by Michael Lett, Auckland) and Angela Tiatia (represented by Sullivan+Strumpf, Sydney), TIME joins with a growing number of organisations focusing their resources on the activities of female practitioners.
TIME speaks to the power of the now and is presented across four CBD sites including Melbourne Art Fair, Buxton Contemporary, Fed Square and QT Melbourne.
