BLINDSIDE is an independent contemporary arts space located in the heart of Melbourne. We are committed to supporting and promoting contemporary art practice across a broad range of media through an ever-changing program of exhibitions, screenings, events and workshops. BLINDSIDE supports a thriving arts community in Melbourne and beyond—encouraging artistic experimentation, innovation and facilitating critical dialogue.
In any given year our program delivers over twenty-five exhibitions including solo and curated group shows—featuring emerging and established artists. We also maintain a framework of professional development, assisting and mentoring emerging artists, curators and writers toward fine-tuning their skills and practice. Our program fosters exchanges between local and interstate artists and supports collaboration and practices which are commonly underrepresented in commercial and institutional art galleries.
