Alternating Current Art Space is an artist-run-space in Melbourne operating four main gallery spaces plus The Cupboard, a small project space.

Our exhibition schedule is packed with early and mid-career contemporary artists working in a wide range of mediums. Our ethos is to encourage artists to experiment and take risks, to provide a supportive environment for artists and to uphold a sustainable model of gallery operations.

AC is a newcomer in the greater Chapel Street Arts Precinct and strives to contribute to the artistic community in Melbourne and beyond.

Alternating Current Art Space loves its art community. That’s where we came from!

At first, we were just a loose community of artists who became an art critique club. The spirit of that vibrant group inspired the formation of an art space emphasising inclusivity and offering accessible opportunities for contemporary artists and curators to show their work.

Visit the gallery, attend an exhibition opening or connect with us on social media and be part of our art community too!


Alternating Current Art Space is run by a voluntary committee of professional staff. They work together on artist selection, exhibition scheduling and event management.


In early 2016, the dilapidated building at 248 High Street, Windsor was transformed into the artist-run-space we now know and love. Check out the transformation.
