Infrastructure: Build Back Better
By Anna Lentchner
Despite apprehension about the post-pandemic economy, cultural organizations saw returns on their investment in new ventures. After a three-year renovation, Artspace, a contemporary art center in Sydney funded by the New South Wales government, reopened its Woolloomooloo headquarters, the Gunnery, on December 15, coinciding with the institution’s 40th anniversary. Artspace now occupies all three floors of the heritage-listed building, providing increased exhibition and multiplatform space, a learning studio, an accessible archive, and ten subsidized artist studios to combat the city’s raising rent prices.
