Second Melbourne Art Gallery to close; this time Bus

Art Press Release from Australia. Published by Rebecca Gabrielle Cannon on Monday 01 March 2010.

While not as permanent as the recently announced impending closure of Gallery 101, Bus Gallery, a CBD-based Artist Run Initiative in Melbourne, Australia, will also be closing this year.

Having benefited for the last nine years from the generosity of landlords Wesley Mission’s massive 90% discounted rent, Bus has creatively adopted to choose a new method of exhibiting, which will still avoid the high rental of a normal fixed gallery space.

As of May, Bus Gallery will aptly be exhibiting from a Bus!

They are still on the lookout for a cheap fixed address, but in the meantime shows will appear at changing locations.

The last exhibitions at Bus on Little Lonsdale open March 2nd.
