First Site Gallery
Come along to be inspired by a new generation of emerging artists.
First Site Gallery has new student exhibitions opening fortnightly on Tuesdays throughout semester. Shows run for two weeks and typically there are three exhibitions on in the gallery at one time.
25 July-4 August
Depth and Dead Ends
Excavating the Site of Painting' explores a recent condition that regards art itself as a perpetual site of discourse. If paintings function as a site to behold then what is occurring within these spaces? RMIT Fine Art student Bronte Mae Webster simultaneously invites the viewer to reflect upon fragments of personal/collective histories, whilst disarming a totally immersive experience through painterly dead ends.
Every second Friday, 1pm
RMIT's latest batch of student artists give you an insight into their work.

Cultural criticism program
CRITICAL is a network for students interested in contemporary arts, writing and exhibitions.
Providing a series of monthly workshops, gatherings, art excursions, panel discussions and playful approaches to art theory, CRITICAL aims to foster social and creative networks amongst students from a variety of disciplines.
Each fortnight, RMIT’s latest batch of student artists give you an insight into their practices with First Site Gallery’s Artist Talks. These talks take place at 1pm in the gallery on the last Friday of each fortnightly exhibition. Come along to hear artists share their inspirations, techniques and ideas on their work and practices.
