Aplications are open to exhibit at NOIR darkroom, a new contempory art gallery and creative hub in Coburg.
We offer 2 affordable gallery spaces suited to most creative disciplines especially focused on emerging artists from all around Victoria.
The first space is our more "traditional" gallery, hosting exhibitions and openings, fitted with gallery tracks wooden and brick walls, which is open and manned 5 days a week 10am - 6pm.
The second space is in the window vitrine gallery. The space includes a ply wood wall with a gallery track and two wooden stairs infront of this wall which are very well suited to exhibiting objects/sculpure/site specfic installation. The gallery is lit up at night showing your artwork to cars/trams driving down busy Moreland road and the many people taking a seat at the 129 tram stop, litterally outside the window.
Artists can rent out one or both gallery spaces over the course of their exhibition.

Our gallery pricing reflects the fact that we are an establishing space. We also wish to keep our fees as low as possible to keep the space accessible for all artists.
• Main Gallery Fee: $250 p/w, concession price $220 p/w
• Tram Stop/Window Gallery Fee: $100 p/w, concession $75 p/w (specific opening night not available for window shows)
We don’t charge commission and artists are expected to organise private sales for their own work.
To keep the costs lower for artists, there is an option for you to organise your own refreshments for opening night. If you choose to organise your own opening and wish to serve alcohol, you must supply the appropriate licenses and bar staff (with an RSA).
Please contact us for information and pricing in regards to providing a staffed bar (ie. alcohol & antipasto platters)
We can sell or serve complimentary alcohol to patrons at openings. Capacity is 100. We hold a temporary liquor licence. Contact us for more info.
