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.
Conversations - A Visual Language
Using drawing, painting and sculptural techniques, one of the pair will produce a mark or visual idea, to which the other will respond immediately. Both artists are unable to audibly "speak" to one another for the duration of their visual dialogue – instead resolving their “conversation” with finished works.
Every second Friday, 1pm
RMIT's latest batch of student artists give you an insight into their work.
Opportunities at First Site Gallery
Apply to exhibit
This is an opportunity to be one of five current RMIT students that use First Site Gallery as a working studio during the mid-semester break, culminating in a two week show.
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.
