KINGS Artist-Run is a contemporary art gallery and studio complex located in the west end of the Melbourne CBD. The gallery was formed in 2003 by Annie Wilson, Frank Guarino, Brendan Lee and Brie Trennery, and continues to be communally driven by a collective of artists, writers, curators and academics. KINGS program encompasses a range of distinct experimental performances, publishing initiatives and exhibitions. These include a range of projects presented across three exhibition spaces in which artists, collectives and curators are provided with an opportunity to form new work. In addition, KINGS presents a program of singular ‘one-off’ events through its FLASHnight program. In 2015 KINGS developed an Emerging Writers’ Program to support and mentor early career writers through the development, editing and publishing of writing in artistic contexts.
