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.

Get Paid to Make Art!

ART FOR PALMER STREET is a project centered around the huge blank wall of the Brotherhood of St Laurence on the corner of Brunswick and Palmer Streets in Fitzroy. The wall is currently covered in posters and tags from late night wanderers. Be the Artist to make this eyesore a promoter for the arts and your practice!

This highly visible wall can be seen by tram sitters, riders, drivers and walkers up and down Brunswick Street as well as by the traffic down Palmer Street. The wall is 12metres (high) by 4.5metres (wide). The artist will benefit from the exposure as well as directly from the commission we raise through Pozible. Check the profile here POZIBLE!


Opposite WINDOW99 is The Brotherhood of St Laurence. "The Brotherhood works not just to alleviate poverty but to prevent it". With the Fitzroy office specifically aiming to "strengthen the capacity of new and emerging communities to become active participants in the social and economic life of Australia". More info can be found at BROTHERHOOD

INVOLVEMENT worth $1,000

As this is a large project in partnership with the Brotherhood there are a few steps required to be selected as the artist. First we would love to receive an Expression of Interest (stating info below), we will then select 2-3 artist who will come along to a briefing at the Brotherhood where a more detailed description of the work will be discussed. The artist will then submit a final description and illustration of the artwork along with equipment requirements. The final artist and work will then be selected and the FUN can begin!

The project will cover costs of paint and equipment and deal with all permits needed for the completion of the work. The artist will then receive the final commission for the project, which is aimed at being $1,000.

Project paint date is aimed at taking place during the month of November 2011 with the specific date to be discussed and confirmed with The Brotherhood and the artist.

Want to get involved? write to us at by AUGUST 10TH with the following deets...

July Exhibition

Exhibition opens Saturday the 9th of July, 6 till 8.30pm and will run till July 30th.

This Month at WINDOW99 features Ramona Telecican alongside a collaboration by Veronica Cust and Benjamin Woods, with the opening night performance in ROLLERDOOR PERFORMANCE SPACE by duo Letitia Sutherland and Lauren Cruickshank.
Ramona Telecican

Paris Hilton in Faux Fur is a work embracing and reflecting upon a sub culture of social disease addicts. Addicts based on being anarchistic within social constraints, obtaining luxury without understanding the lifestyle, and counseling their admirers with homogeneous gratitude and empathy. Their first words were; marketing, PR and exponential.

Ramona Telecican's practice emerges from within three frameworks: form. repetition. delicacy. As a professional Stylist and Creative Producer, Ramona's work as an Artist finds her exploring the curiosities and intricacies of how aesthetics effect us when the power of context is in her hands.

Veronica Cust & Benjamin Woods

Can you pass me something please is a collaboration between Melbourne Artists Veronica Cust and Benjamin Woods. This work details a specific mode of physical production, closely associated with simple everyday tasks of transferring. The performance led investigation details the movement of the two artists in uniform as they enact actions of throwing, stacking and catching. Through “acting out” this simple scripted task the artists not only engage with the physicality of the act itself, but also with the absurdity of the task when it is going towards no end.

REhearse at WINDOW99 - September Call Out

WINDOW99 is seeking artists, musicians, dancers and performers for a unique SEPTEMBER EXHIBITION. For the month of September window99 will remove the window boxes to reveal the studio space behind. This space will then be open for artists, musician, dancers, performers and anyone else who would like to 'rehearse' their practice throughout the month, at any time, on any day, for as long as they like. This will create an ongoing performative work that will be witnessed by both artistic and public audiences alike.

Rehearsal dates are Saturday the 10th of September till October 1st.
Proposals due Friday July 8th

REhearse BRIEF

As history does inadvertently repeat itself, we familiarise ourselves with a cycle of behaviors and attitudes of our predecessors, contemporaries, and our current selves, which influence our present and future. This process is likened to a ‘rehearsal’ where we take on a ‘role’ or ‘persona’ to enact a ‘performance’ in the civic space.

The project will explore the idea of ‘rehearsal’ and how this can be influential on artistic practice. In this instance, window99 will become a ‘rehearsal’ space in which the synergy between the surrounding urban landscape, the artist and the site becomes material for the development of works to be created and presented on-site.


Artists are invited to present an act for rehearsal in the studio space, which for the month of September will be revealed through the removal of the window boxes that make up window99. The artists will then use the exposed studio as a 'rehearsal' space to enact and reenact their practice. This rehearsal process does not need to take the form of an object, although it can, but simply can be an act or movement repeated in the attempt to perfect the practice.
The artist fee if according to how many days/hours the artist would like to ‘rehearse’ at a rate of 25/day.


Due Friday July 8th.
More information can be found at the blogspot but please do not hesitate to call Marie (0403 668 237) before you submit your proposal to discuss any ideas, questions or to set up a time to see the space.
