Watch This Space have recently moved to a new location at 8 Gap Rd. An exciting aspect of our new location is the opportunity it provides for interacting with an incidental public – hospital patients looking for a place to sit, sunburnt tourists from the Ibis hotel next door, young families from remote communities passing by with strollers, tradies and truckers pulling out of the Shell servo on our other side.

To help us engage this incidental public and get to know our neighbours, two recent resident artists, Hannah Ekin and Jorgen Doyle, constructed a ‘discursive noticeboard’ to be installed at the front of the WTS premises.

The discursive noticeboard will operate as a space for artists, researchers, autodidacts and amateurs to share the matters, insights, and methodologies that they think are most urgently needed in the world. These may take the form of research or creative works-in-progress. ‘Curators’ of the noticeboard are expected to work with a mixture of love, hope, and urgency – it ought to be a bit like writing a love letter to someone you may never know, but then again, might. Each curator is responsible for providing content for the noticeboard for one month, before passing their role on to a person of their choosing, chainmail style. The noticeboard is intended both to intervene locally in Alice Springs, and connect local dynamics with narratives specific to other places and people.

In order for the noticeboard to fulfill council requirements, it is currently undergoing an expensive renovation/accreditation process. Your benevolent contribution will pay for structural changes to the noticeboard and its reinstallation as a permanent feature.

The only contemporary experimental art space in Central Australia, Watch This Space has played a critical role in the creative ecology of Mparntwe/Alice Springs over the past 24 years.

WTS works to be a catalyst and conduit for conversations and experiments in the always-evolving languages of art. It supports contemporary art dialogue in the region both inside and outside a gallery space, encouraging, nurturing and promoting Central Australian and visiting artists.
