The bright and airy gallery space at level 1, 170 Abbotsford St, North Melbourne (formerly known as Purgatory Artspace), was re-launched under the name GALLERYSMITH PROJECT SPACE in 2014 by curator and gallery manager Emma Benichou. 

Sitting somewhere between an Artist Run Initiative and a commercial gallery, Gallerysmith Project Space selects proposals with a view to programming a calendar of exceptional exhibitions presenting a broad range of media and critical approaches and offers a new model for connecting emerging artists with established collectors.

Gallerysmith Project Space draws on the combined experience of gallery coordinator Belinda Neilson and Gallerysmith director Marita Smith to develop a strong focus on cutting edge exhibitions by some of Australia’s most exciting emerging artists who are at the forefront of contemporary art practice.
