True Estate gallery invited artists to submit a collection, object, concept, drawing, model, painting, sculpture, mixed media, collage, ephemera, image, video, website, story, memory or dream that is found, inherited or created and tells a story about how, where or why you have lived as an artist.

Open House is an exhibition that will present this accumulated collection of artists objects and artworks and display them within a framework of plastic furniture, accompanied by a printed catalogue. The concept of Open House is to amass a collection of creative responses to housing specifically from artists so as to explore the emotional, economic, social and physical circumstances of living as an artist, historically and today.

True Estate is an eclectic new artist run gallery located upstairs at The Alderman, a bespoke deco bar @ 134 Lygon Street, East Brunswick. True Estate will present a program of curated exhibitions that engage with the accumulative and collective state of things today. True Estate is interested in situating contemporary art practices in dialogue with the built environment and the domestic scale, international style, personal taste and artists collecting practices, true crime, colonial resistance, urban myths and the realities of the artist's 'lifestyle' in Australia today.

Open House will be our first show and opens 6pm Tuesday August 1st 2017. Exhibition runs August 1st - September 4th 2017

True Estate gallery is located above The Alderman a bespoke deco bar @ 134 Lygon Street, East Brunswick.
