G3 Artspace opens in Melbourne
Located in the suburb of Parkdale, the new art space combines a minimalist layout with technological sophistication
The product of a collaborative effort between the City of Kingston and Suters Architects, the gallery’s design has been kept simple: a classic White Cube with a floor to ceiling window onto the street. The space is also fitted out with the latest in digital technology, giving artists the option of exhibiting digital or ‘moving image’ art. A large drop-down screen taking up most of the front window enables moving image works to be viewed from the street at night.
The gallery’s role is to draw attention to the exhibition of specific and newer forms of contemporary art in the suburbs by both emerging and established artists, as seen in the inaugural exhibition by Melbourne artist Megan Evans. G3 will be curated by Justin Gayner, whose background and experience is informed and professional with periods spent at Heide’s MOMA, 200 Gertrude Street and an internship at Artists Space in New York.
Upcoming exhibitions include Naomi Troski in the next month, in July, for NAIDOC week, Indigenous artist Maree Clarke, and in October-November an exhibition of works by Queensland artist Jasmine Coleman.
