BLINDSIDE is an independent contemporary arts space located in the heart of Melbourne. We are committed to supporting and promoting contemporary art practice across a broad range of media through an ever-changing program of exhibitions, screenings, events and workshops. BLINDSIDE supports a thriving arts community in Melbourne and beyond—encouraging artistic experimentation, innovation and facilitating critical dialogue.
In any given year our program delivers over twenty-five exhibitions including solo and curated group shows—featuring emerging and established artists. We also maintain a framework of professional development, assisting and mentoring emerging artists, curators and writers toward fine-tuning their skills and practice. Our program fosters exchanges between local and interstate artists and supports collaboration and practices which are commonly underrepresented in commercial and institutional art galleries.
Nestled in the historic Nicholas Building within Melbourne's CBD, BLINDSIDE is managed by a voluntary committee of dedicated arts professionals: Claire Anna Watson (Chair), Shae Nagorcka (Secretary), Blaine Cooper (Treasurer), Andrew Tetzlaff, Apryl Morden, Xanthe, Raymonda Rajkowski and Felicity Strong. We also draw from the experience of our Advisory Committee: Robert Heather, Natalie Kazakis and Daine Singer.
