“Objects in Space is lots of art in lots of places; a scattered colonisation of quiet moments spread throughout numerous galleries across the city.

The individual works in Objects in Space will not be limited to the main drag of the ‘white cube’, instead they will be lying in wait in the unexpected corners and functional spaces of each gallery. Turn your sense of adventure on high alert for this treasure hunt of art. Peeking out from stairs, perching on roofs and scurrying around the storerooms, you will have to be savvy to catch this show. An accompanying interactive catalogue and website can be used as a map to point you in the right direction.

Objects in Space showcases the work of over twenty young artists and architects in as many gallery spaces throughout Melbourne. The works in this exhibition defy the expectations of a conventional group show, by creating a network across the city, a network that forms a parasitic and miniaturized version of the 2008 Next Wave Festival.”
