Shed180

Shed180 is an Outdoor Art Gallery created upon the exterior of a beautiful historic building in an industrial area within West Melbourne.
Working with the owners of the site the Gallery was created over a six month period in 2015 and will remain in place for 4-5 years as part of a broader transformation of the area into a mixed use zone. As the precinct transforms and develops, the bricks from the Shed will be removed carefully and be reused within either an exhibition space or artist in residence studio space. The Urban art upon Shed180 celebrates a wide range of different forms of expression that make our city vibrant.
