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.

REhearse at window99

REhearse at window99
September 10th till October 1st, 2011

Over the next three weeks video artist, performers, puppeteers, dancers, actors, musicians and visual artists will embrace the studio as their rehearsal space in an attempt perfect their practices.

window99 gallery sits amidst the commision flats, pubs, cafes, retail, craft/design stores and community centres of Fitzroy. For this month only the window boxes have been removed and the studio is bare. Kicking off on Saturday, the REhearse project is an exhibition that explores the idea of the artists' practice as a 'rehearsal'. Inside the window99 studio the artists will be influenced by the synergy of the surrounding urban landscape allowing the site to become material for the development of works to be created and performed within the space.

Video footage from each rehearsal will be broadcast on the REhearse project page with the schedule available at the start of each week. To view bios for all the artists involved see 'artist bios' on the REhearse site.
