Artspace's home since 1993, The Gunnery building is currently being transformed into a landmark multi-platform contemporary art centre with expanded exhibition spaces, increased artist studios and greater connections to Woolloomooloo, the East Sydney precinct and Sydney Harbour Foreshore. During this period of redevelopment, expanded offsite programs include National and Regional Exhibition tours, International Partnerships and Co-commissions. Artspace is where audiences meet the artists and the ideas of these times. Artspace is a presenting partner of the 24th Biennale of Sydney, 'Ten Thousand Suns', held from 9 March - 10 June. Artspace was established in 1983 as an artist-run contemporary art space dedicated to the presentation of contemporary and experimental art in a critical context.

Since this time, Artspace has become a recognised site for the production and presentation of visual arts in an expanded field, with an emphasis on the creation of new work.
