MISSION

To present a diverse program of experimental creative practice that supports artists, writers and curators at any stage of their development, and connects them with the community.

BLINDSIDE provides unique experiences for artists and their development, always striving to expand the sphere of artistic practice and empowering artists to see into fruition bold and spectacular ideas. We provide the opportunity for audiences to see the breadth of contemporary art practice from sculpture, drawing, painting and performance art, through to new media, video, sound, installation and craft. If you are heading to our space, expect the unexpected.

We take pride in supporting arts writers as well as artists. All of our exhibitions are supported with critical texts to contextualise the work. We are also committed to the role of education in the future of contemporary art practice and so we offer an extensive program of talks, workshops and forums for artists, the general public and visiting school groups. With an expanding program and strong organisational rigour, and after a decade of developing and presenting contemporary art practice within the city of Melbourne, we are committed to becoming more responsive and engaged with our audiences and community than ever before.

BLINDSIDE’s strategic direction is managed by a voluntary board of dedicated arts professionals.
