Articulate project space is an artist-run initiative (ari) run by a group of artists whose diverse practices share an interest in the relationships artworks form with their locations. These practices have varied origins and purposes, and include a desire to contribute to the broad environmental movement through the role we hope that spatial art practices can play in re-valuing place.
Articulate acknowledges Australia’s First Nations’ People as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this land. We offer our respects to the Elders—past, present and future—and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Articulate project space is a not-for-profit Incorporated Association in Sydney Australia that supports an alternative project/ exhibition programme emphasising spatial, critical and or cross-disciplinary art practices. A key concern is the spatial relationship between artworks and their physical location. Articulate is run by a group of visual artists with similar interests and other connections to the studios in the same building.
Articulate project space supports experimental contemporary art – it provides rental space for project development, exhibition & performance. Articulate is especially interested in supporting art practices based on ‘idea dictating form’ rather than on any particular medium.
N.B. Articulate does not have a price range for sale of artworks although individual artists do sell work. Most artworks are in the low to medium price range.
The yearly program of Articulate project space includes projects and exhibitions proposed by visual, performance, sound and other artists, as well as special projects including the ‘project space project’ aimed at promoting interest in experimenting with exhibition practice. The project space project focuses on relationships between the conceptual processes that go into art-making and art-exhibiting, and also on the relationships formed between artworks and the places where they are made.
Articulate project space is located at 497 Parramatta Rd, Leichhardt. Sydney. Between [Norton] Rofe & Elswick Sts – opposite Cass Bros/ Kennards self storage [orange bldg]. Opening hours vary with each project, usually Fri-Sun, 11am-5pm but best to check. http://articulate497.blogspot.com/
