Loophole - Supporting Emerging Artists in the CBD
Madeleine Scott, a talented Melbourne artist, is working on a new exciting art project in Melbourne's CBD targeted towards emerging artists and increasing accessibility for all different sorts of artists to show their work.
Loophole is an opportunity for local and emerging designers, artists, craft and accessory makers to show innovative and experimental work in cabinet display spaces. The work will be seen in the context of the busy, well established Loop Project Space & Bar at 23 Meyers Place CBD.
LoopHole is a unique project- as an alternative to the conventional gallery space, and aims to not only showcase a wide variety of works to an engaged audience - but to offer a free space to young emerging artists to show work - and a space for craftspeople and other artists working outside the typical fine art world to exhibit and be included in the Melbourne art scene.
Loophole is comprised of four glass vitrines, situated in the alcoves and alongside the screens at Loop. Glass shelving can be provided within the vitrines for the display of smaller objects.
With the Loophole concept, Loop further extends its support to contemporary artists working with a wide range of media. The display spaces present a broad spectrum of works to an informed and engaged public audience.
Loophole provides these spaces for free and also offer a complimentary drink card to entertain artists’ guests on opening nights. Your show will be advertised in the weekly newsletter to an extensive mailing list, and also be featured on the website for the duration of the exhibition. At the end of the show, your exhibition will be archived into our LoopHole history for future reference.
What are the Cabinet Specs?
The cabinets stand at 138cm high, 65cm wide with a depth of 33 cm.
Up to 4 glass shelves can be installed to divide the space into 5 different sections, at a height of 26.5cm.
The cabinets are back lit and lights can be dimmed to suit the work.
Loop is a multimedia venue, so projector screens located in the main room, as well as sound and other audio-visual equipment can be used.
