Carriageworks invites eleven artist-led initiatives from across New South Wales for ‘No Show’. Including artist-run spaces, studios, cooperatives, digital platforms and online publications, each group presents an independent program that profiles early career and under-represented artists. Across three weeks, artists and writers work within the discrete but connected spaces designed by architects Youssofzay + Hart.
