Artspace is Australia’s leading interdisciplinary space for the production and presentation of contemporary art. Through exhibitions, performances, artist residencies, and public programs, Artspace is where artists of all generations test new ideas and shape public conversation. Committed to experimentation, collaboration and advocacy, Artspace’s mission is to enhance our culture through a deeper engagement with contemporary art.
Publishing is integral to Artspace’s Artistic Program, and reflects the importance of presenting contemporary art in book form as an expanded tool for engaging broad audiences in contemporary art. Artspace has consistently commissioned and developed innovative and critical writing. Our extensive archive contains a breadth of publications contributing to the fields of contemporary art, art theory and cultural studies, as well as numerous flagship monographic publications. In 2015, we were delighted to release Justene Williams’ monograph The Curtain Breathed Deeply, based on her first solo presentation at Artspace, Sydney and Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne.
