About

KINGS Artist-Run is a contemporary arts organisation supporting a range of artists, writers and performers in the early stages of their careers. KINGS was originally formed as a gallery to exhibit experimental video work on King Street in Melbourne in 2003 by Annie Wilson, Frank Guarino, Marcel Cousins, Brendan Lee and Brie Trennery, and continues to be communally driven by a collective of artists, writers, curators and academics. KINGS program evolved to encompasses a range of distinct experimental performances, publishing initiatives and exhibitions.

In early 2020, KINGS vacated our multi-level premises in Melbourne’s CDB. The organisation operated a mobile model for the following year commissioning writing, digital works, and public projects. In 2021, KINGS established a new gallery space in West Melbourne, this venue will be open to the public in May 2021.
