Carriageworks, one of Australia’s largest multi-arts precincts, has invited 11 artist-led initiatives from across New South Wales to be a part of a free, 3-week multidisciplinary artistic presentation, each presenting an independent program across the three weeks.

NO SHOW will highlight the activities of artist-run spaces, studios, cooperatives, digital platforms and online publications, with the work of more than 50 largely early-career Australian artists and writers, on display,

NO SHOW will take over the Carriageworks Public Space and Bay 19 from 12 February until 7 March 2021 with a constantly evolving display of art installations, screenings, performances and writer residencies.

A light, modular structure for the artists and writers to work within, that is demountable and recyclable, has been purposefully built for the event by Sydney-based architects Youssofzay + Hart, using off-the-shelf materials to create discrete but connected spaces that will support the program.
