Hyphenated Projects is a platform for artists with transcultural practices and a collective that presents, collaborates and develops new ideas. We focus on supporting artists who operate with the hyphens — culturally, socially and geographically.
Situated in a suburban house in Sunshine West, Melbourne, the space supports artists, producers and researchers through an artist residency and development program.
The collective was founded after presenting a survey exhibition of Asian-Australian artists in Victoria at The Substation titled Hyphenated (2018). Since then, we have partnered and collaborated with Due West Arts Festival, Next Wave, Footscray Community Arts, ACMI, Incinerator Gallery and The Substation with a range of contemporary and community arts projects. In 2020-2022, we delivered our largest project to date: Hyphenated Biennial, a multi-venue exhibition across Melbourne's West.
