Project Rooms profile the work of emerging and independent artists by presenting new work in a series of spaces in and around the Royal Exhibition Building during the time of the Fair.
Project Rooms create opportunities for developing artists to present innovative and experimental work within the context of a major international visual art event. The Melbourne Art Fair and the selected Project Rooms highlight the diversity of current contemporary art practice, by placing independent art spaces alongside a strong and vibrant gallery scene.
Artists, Curators and Art Spaces selected for Melbourne Art Fair Project Rooms are provided with an exhibition space and a monetary grant from the Melbourne Art Foundation. Project Rooms provide emerging artists significant profile raising opportunities, in the critical early stages of their artistic careers.
