Non-profit art gallery housed in an old mechanics garage

The art projects that inspire me most are the ones that combine utopianism and pragmatism in equal measures. The second last project that did this was Renew Newcastle, which installed artists and small local wannabe businesspeople into vacant commercial properties in that rundown Australian port city. The latest like-minded endeavor is Sebastian Goldspink’s ALASKA Projects. Venture into a carpark in seedy inner Sydney’s Kings Cross, and on level two, you will eventually find a tiny, non-profit art gallery housed in an old mechanics’ garage. ALASKA dares us to imagine that every empty shopfront, every stingy grey wall, every abandoned corner of every city could be hijacked as a site of creative invasion. It’s completely idealistic and completely realistic, and that’s why it works.
