Spike Island

A Summer of Pop-up Shows

Starting next week and running throughout the summer, Spike Island presents a series of one night pop-up exhibitions selected and organised by representatives of our artistic community in a new temporary gallery.

Each evening features a selection of pieces or project by one of the building’s groups who are taking an experimental, collaborative approach to using the space. This offers you an opportunity to see the artists’ work in a different way than you might have during a visit to our Open weekend. The exhibitions take place outside of the studio spaces, presenting dynamic bodies of finished artworks that reflect the wide array of practices housed here at Spike Island.

Entrance to the pop-up gallery space is at the rear of the building on Sydney Row, and we’ll be running a bottle bar at each event. We hope you can join us to see and to celebrate the work of these artists.
