Newly incorporated Artist-Run-Initiative AIRspace Projects INC will be holding a fundraiser-meets-exhibition this month, starting with a celebratory opening night on December 1.
For the past four years Sally Clarke and Brenda Factor have been running the formerly independent space and pulling together some killer exhibitions. Now the team are excited to be rolling out a bunch of new projects including video weekends and AIRseum — an unconventional museum dreamt up by artist, scientist and museologist Catherine Polcz.
The exhibition spreads across four galleries and features both established and emerging artists including Liz Day, Yiorgos Zafiriou, Katy Plummer, Ali Noble, Stella Chen and Susan Andrews. You'll be able to snap up multiples, series, publications and even originals, all to support what the gallery calls "a struggling species" (i.e., artists). It's a good opportunity for would-be-investors, and a chance to buy a truly awesome Christmas present for someone.
AIRfair will be open from 11am Thursdays-Saturdays from December 1 to 16.
