Opening

After 2 years in Melbourne’s most contemporary corridor, DUDSPACE finally emerges from its confines to take over the entire space of KINGS Artist Run. For dudproject #1 the curatorial rationale is simple: artists cannot utilise any of the conventional gallery spaces. What is left is an empty gallery. The bare bones uncovered, the DUD spaces evident.

DUDSPACE has always been about great art in a shit space. dudproject #1 extends this notion further, by forcing artists to think outside the white cube. By inserting them back into the traditional space it forces them to re-re-contextualise their work once again. DUDSPACE allows the cream to rise to the top, and the shit to sink to the bottom.

  • Annabelle Kingston is a Filipinx-Australian artist and musician. In addition to her painting practice, Annabelle is one half of art/design duo Paradise Structures, makes experimental pop music under the name Waterfall Person, and co-runs a shop called Perfect Splash. Her recent solo shows include “Fart or Flight” and “Annabelle’s F*r*i*e*n*d”. Her painting "Waterfall (on tour with Mum)" is based on a true story.
  • In absurdist assemblages of ready-mades and videos, Lou Hubbard combines existing and imagined personal narratives with artistic and literary references to confound expected associations among images and meaning. Hubbard exhibits across Australia and internationally and is represented by Sarah Scout Presents, Melbourne. She teaches in the School of Art VCA.
  • Lyndal May Stewart is a Melbourne-based artist and curator. Stewart holds a Bachelor of Fine Art (2011) from the Victorian College of the Arts and is the Co-Director of DUDSPACE and a committee member of KINGS Artist Run.
