Moores Building art space
Located in Fremantle’s historic west end, the Moores Building Art Space (MBAS) consists of galleries and studios, with regular visual arts exhibitions, workshops and performances.
Managed and curated by Fremantle Arts Centre MBAS seeks to promote a wide range of emerging and established contemporary artists by actively fostering the development of an experimental and highly innovative exhibition program. The gallery’s unique architectural design offers artists the opportunity to develop site specific installations. The building is a raw and rustic space with open ceiling cavities and inimitable heritage features.

The rear studios have ample natural light, concrete slab floors, lined walls, access to running water, and are best suited to individual artists although smaller groups, collaborations and collectives are welcome to apply.
The upstairs studios are large open spaces with wooden floors with some heritage restrictions in place. Dry practices only will be permitted in these spaces. Individual, groups, collaborations, collectives, and organisations are welcome to apply.
