West Space is a contemporary art space that provides an experimental and responsive platform for the development, exhibition and contextualisation of artists work. We are distinct in being a non-for-profit organisation that blends the creative freedom and risk-taking of an artist-run space with the professional infrastructure of a contemporary art institution.
One of our key objectives is to support future pathways for local artists. We do this through exhibition programming, commissioning, publishing and mentoring. We also take responsibility in leading discussions that contribute to broad contemporary art concerns (aesthetic, social, political and material), as well as investing in research and advocacy on issues that affect artists.
