After a year-long hiatus, the Arts Project gallery is moving from its Northcote location, which continues as a studio, to a freshly remodelled space at Collingwood Yards, a new arts precinct in Melbourne’s inner north.

The inaugural exhibition Where the Art Is ruminates on the year that was, while firmly looking forward to a new future and opens to visitors from Saturday 20 March until Saturday 1 May.

Where the Art Is showcases a collection of thought-provoking new work by ten artists: nostalgic ceramic sculptures by Alan Constable and Lisa Reid, a video installation by Chris O’Brien, COVID-19 lockdown drawings and paintings by Cathy Staughton, Adrian Lazzaro, and Samantha Ashdown, text-based work by Boris Cipusev and Mark Smith, archway paintings by Warren O’Brien, and iconic pastel drawings by Julian Martin.


  • Wheelchair accessible

The Arts Project Australia gallery has accessible toilets in the Perry Street Building. They are located in the northern end of the building. On the upper ground level they are located off the northern side of the service corridor. On L1 and L2 they are located behind blue manual double doors.

Entry 30A Perry Street is wheelchair accessible and offers direct access to the Courtyard, Perry Street Building upper ground and Johnston Street Building upper ground. Lift access is available to visit other buildings and levels.
