Introducing ECU Galleries

Monday, 19 October 2020


The newly branded ECU Galleries is a CREAtec (Centre for Research in Entertainment, Arts, Technology, Educations and Communications) initiative implemented in order to consolidate practice-led research (PLR) on the Mount Lawley Campus and incorporates Gallery25 and Spectrum Project Space.

Folding the CREAtec galleries under one brand means a central body (the ECU Galleries Committee) have an overarching view of what research and engagement looks like on the ML campus and how best to respond to emergent and dynamic creative opportunities.

With the galleries incorporation into CREAtec:

  • ECU Galleries map research events across the exhibition calendar.
  • Reciprocal events with other universities (for the purposes of ERA) are targeted well in advance.
  • Spectrum Project Space remains focused on project development with an additional focus on: undergraduate integration of curriculum 2020, HDR early candidature exhibitions, Masters by Research final exhibitions, engagement, and visiting scholars.  This is a venue for early, emerging and mid-career artists, collectives, curators, and performers to develop their project, providing a flexible exhibition and research space, allowing artists to participate within a rich creative research hub and to engage publicly in the process of developing their work.
  • Gallery 25 retains exhibitions from the ECU collection, with an additional focus on staff and university exchange exhibitions, PhD completion exhibitions, visiting scholar and interdisciplinary collaborative exhibitions. This is space for doctoral candidates, mid-career and established artists, curators, and the ECU Art Collection. Gallery25 is committed to showcasing the University’s research outcomes and cultural stories, and to presenting exhibitions and creative research events that are relevant to the student population and experience.
  • ECU galleries have a dedicated slot for Fringe World and is committed to interfacing with broader cultural institutions and the community.  ECU staff and HDR, and the ECU collection are to be featured in both spaces.
  • Both galleries now partner in openings with joint advertising and social media posts under the ECU Galleries brand.
