Junior Space Closing Party + Super Salon Show

Help us celebrate this happy/sad occasion as Junior Space closes the doors at 65 Smith Street, Fitzroy.

In just 20 months Junior Space has hosted 41 exhibitions, 41 openings, book launches, workshops, life drawing classes, film screenings and more… it may be needless to say, but we’re tired💤 Junior Space is no longer moving, and will be taking a break.

Summer opening hours

We have changed our opening hours to accomodate x-mas shoppers/summer visitors after work hours.

Junior Space Volunteer Program 2017

As you’ve probably gathered, we’re into art. Our retail store and gallery space is helping others get their work out in the world. We also host a number of events like screenings, exhibitions, talks and book launches.

We want to make sure you have a valuable time volunteering with Junior Space, and get a taste of what it is like to work in and run a small gallery.

✧・゚:* James J Robinson’s ‘After Hours’ Launch *:・゚✧

Melbourne-based photographer and filmmaker James J Robinson launches his first solo photobook: a publication shot around Japan, South Korea and Australia that deconstructs the principles of contemporary fashion photography.

Shot primarily after midnight, only using available light provided by stores and streets that leave their lights on, AEVOE’s third publication ‘After Hours’ aims to recycle energy wasted on empty streets to act as the light source for a number of disparate fashion photoshoots.
