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.

Coin Operated Launch Party

Conduit Arts Initiative
Saturday April 28th, 2012 > 6pm till 9pm

Having said a teary goodbye to window99 at the end of 2011 Marie Schoenmaker and Leo Kavanagh are back and only 3 doors up the road. The new project is Conduit Arts Initiative and we are having a Coin Operated Launch Party on Saturday the 28th of April from 6-9pm. There will be music, performances and merry making as we celebrate in our new space and our fresh looking outdoor area.

What do we mean by coin operated? you'll just have to find out. Empty your spare change jars and come and help us celebrate. We would love to have you there.

We'll also be announcing our programming ideas for the year so we encourage all musicians, performers and visual artists to come along because it all has something to do with you. In fact you're the reason that this space has been created.
