GALLERY INFORMATION

Gallery details
ArticulateUpstairs is the mezzanine space on the first floor of the Articulate building, located at 497 Parramatta Rd, Leichhardt. 

ArticulateUpstairs accepts proposals and expressions of interest from artists for small scale projects and wall installations. These can include abstraction, installation, photography or moving image, expanded painting and drawing, collecting and archival projects, documentation projects and projects that explore curating and exhibiting as an installation practice.

The space is comprised of two walls and is best suited to two dimensional work or work that does not exceed 40cm depth from the wall. Wall A is 6.96 metres long. Wall B is 4.6 metres long. Both are 3 metres in height. There is a corridor that is 2.3 metres wide and runs the length of the space but is not to be used as part of the exhibition space. The bathroom wall at the top of the stairs and the brick wall on the Parramatta Rd end of the mezzanine are also not to be used as exhibition space. 

Please note that at this stage the space can not be darkened.
