Locksmith Project Space is a gallery, not-for-profit and is run under the initiative of artists located in Sydney, Australia, on the border in the middle of Alexandria and Redfern. A committee made up of four young promising artists directs the gallery, Yasmin Smith, Samuel Villalobos, Kenzee Patterson, and Rachel Fuller.

Exhibitions, experimental sound, music nights, and video and film screenings are just some of Locksmith’s programs.

Locksmith Project Space aims to support young, up-and-coming artists by giving them a place where they can showcase their works of art, rent and commission free. Artists are also given artist fees plus works sold don’t have commission taken off their price.

Locksmith Project Space has been going on for more than three years and on 2009 and 2010, it embarked on another kind of journey, the publication of the print journal, Locksmith Project. The Locksmith Project is an unconventional, curated publication showcasing ideas and writings of international, national and local artists. The publication was an opportunity for writers and artists to experiment with their initial ideas, works-in-progress, research, plans, sketches and other things that show how artists come up with their art work.

The one event that helped set how the programming and operation of Locksmith Project Space began in late 2007. A fundraiser happened that time and donated works of art from artists Fiona Lowry, Daniel Boyd and Emma White were auctioned. The event that inspired what Locksmith Project Space is today also help get the support, enthusiasm and encouragement from Sydney’s arts community.

The very first exhibition at Locksmith Project Space happened in February 2008 and was called ’’The Start of a Very Nice Day.’’

Locksmith Project Space is a not-for-profit, artist-run initiative located on the border between Redfern and Alexandria in Sydney, Australia. The directorial committee consists of four young and emerging artists; Kenzee Patterson, Samuel Villalobos, Yasmin Smith and Rachel Fuller.

Our program includes exhibitions, as well as experimental sound and music nights, and film and video screenings.

Locksmith Project Space has been operating for close to three years and is a particularly unique model as we attempt to support young and emerging artists by providing our exhibiting artists with artist fees, rent-free exhibitions, and zero commission on work sold.

During 2009 and 2010 we expanded our exhibition program through the publication of three issues of Locksmith Project, an independent, curated publication of local, national and international artists’ ideas and writing. Locksmith Project provided artists and writers with the opportunity to experiment with works-in-progress, initial ideas, research, sketches, plans and basically anything that constitutes making art work.

In May 2010 Locksmith Project Space was invited to take part in the 2010 Next Wave Festival keynote exhibition, Structural Integrity. Six Australian ARIs and five Asian ARIs spent four weeks in residence at the Meat Market where they got to know each other and produced work for the exhibition. The directors of Locksmith Project Space produced K-25934 (2010), a travelling, carnivale tent / trailer which is now on permanent display at the Arts House, Meat Market in North Melbourne.
