ART SPACE / STUDIOS
The Tate at Glebe’s renowned hotel, The Toxteth, is the latest addition to the inner west’s visual arts scene. Comprising of a rent-free, commission-free gallery space as well as a set of no-rent art studios, The Tate will house a curated family of artists from a range of disciplines and backgrounds, with the objective of re-invigorating Sydney’s arts and cultural scene.
The Tate is another initiative from the team behind Sydney’s Lo-Fi Collective: co-founded by Peer Group and Riversdale Group and co-curated by Marty Routledge and Christopher Loutfy.
Following the success of Lo-Fi, as well as The Standard, Go Font Ur Self and Self Est., the founders see The Tate as yet another step in the process of addressing the distance between Sydney’s arts education system and the art industry, as well as bridging the physical gap between Sydney’s inner west and the inner city.
The Tate’s five no-rent studios will be made available to artists of varying experience and ability working across a range of mediums and formats, selected on the basis of applications.
