Edition Office 2018

Description

Located in Collingwood, the heart of Victoria’s creative precinct, Artbank’s Melbourne office and showroom provides a space for client and sector engagement, collaboration and creativity under one very tall roof.

Artbank worked with award-winning local architecture studio Edition Office to fit-out the warehouse, designing a functional racking system to be viewed as a sculptural object central to the space.

What's On

Artbank will open up our collection store to the public for a special behind-the-scenes view of this incredible purpose-built collection space, usually only reserved for back of house staff.

Learn about the Artbank Collection, artist support program and art leasing initiative that has been running for over 40 years. As part of this special Open House event, visitors can explore over 1400 artworks collected across Artbank’s 44 years of operation, all available through Artbank’s unique art leasing initiative. Pull out racks, peer into the sculpture store and wander through the visible storage space to discover new favourite artworks from this amazing collection of Australian contemporary art. The Artbank team will be on hand to tell you about the artworks and show you around the collection.
