Space overview

Applications to exhibit are currently closed. Please enquire to be added to our mailing list for future EOIs. Exhibit in one of Melbourne’s most iconic spaces – Campbell Arcade and Degraves Underpass.

The Dirty Dozen and Capsule are some of Melbourne’s most intriguing exhibition spaces. Located in Campbell Arcade and Degraves Underpass, the underground commuter walkway linking Flinders St Station with Degraves St, the space provides artists with the opportunity to exhibit work before thousands of commuters, tourists, visitors and city residents. The Dirty Dozen consists of 12 glass window cases approximately 2475mm wide, 520mm deep and 1050mm high, accommodating both 2D, 3D and sculptural work. Capsule is a single, mirror-backed display case sized 3980mm wide, 1000mm deep and 2000mm high.

The Dirty Dozen and Capsule are located in Campbell Arcade; a pedestrian thoroughfare linking Flinders St Station and Degraves St. The space can be accessed from within Flinders St Station and by a staircase on Degraves St. Managed by the City of Melbourne’s Creative Spaces program, The Dirty Dozen and Capsule are available for month-long exhibition slots awarded through a competitive Expressions of Interest process. Artists may apply for both the Dirty Dozen and Capsule or either separately.
