The Space

window99 was an installation space in the window of 99 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. It was a not-for-profit, artist focused space, open 24 hours a day, everyday.

The Idea

window99 offer an alternative to exhibiting art within the white cube by moving the gallery into the public setting. This also provided artists with an opportunity to exhibit their work within a highly exposed, flexible window box for an affordable rate.

The New Venture

window99 has now resolved with a new space three doors up being the next venture for Marie and Leo. The new initiative is called Conduit Arts and continues the window99 and Rollerdoor Performance Space focus on bringing emerging artists, musician and performers together along with their audiences.

May 14 to June 4

if i tell you i love you can i borrow that dress is a response to the practice of cultural appropriation within the fashion industry and the popularity of 'tribal' or 'ethnic' aesthetics labels that homogenise diverse cultural identities into an exotic other. These culture's, that are still to this day suffering the effects of systemic oppression by western colonialism, have their complex visual identities simplified into aesthetic curios of 'primitive or native' cultures [via inspiration], ready to be accessorised for that authentic native look.
