The Laundry Artspace
The Laundry Artspace is a Brisbane Artist Run Initiative, established in April 2015. The space is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary artists with a focus on interdisciplinary, collaborative and experimental practices. Characterised by its location in the basement of an old Queenslander, we are interested in exhibitions that engage with the quasi-domestic space, critique the traditional gallery aesthetic and develop other critical discussions; contributing to the current broader discourse.
Rather than attempt to change or hide the makeshift exhibition space, artists are encouraged to make site-specific works and embrace this aesthetic and break away from the traditional gallery model. The Laundry holds one-night-only events, with the aim of fostering camaraderie and collaboration among artists, strengthening the local arts community, and promoting a sense of support and pride amongst all artists in the current political and economic environment.
