One of Sydney's most exciting new artspaces: a Kings Cross car park.
Alaska Projects is a newly formed Sydney based artist-run Initiative established to exhibit contemporary visual art in unused or disused spaces. Alaska’s first project is to establish a project space in a forgotten mechanic’s office located in the basement of a Kings Cross car park.
The Car Park project has been conceived to operate beyond the white cube of the project space with exhibition elements devised to occur in other areas of the car park including stairwells, elevators and common areas.
Alaska sees the isolated location of its inaugural project Car Park as positive, an inverted shop front, a cold and distant outpost that visitors need to search for, to discover.
Alaska acknowledges the generous support of the City of Sydney.
