Testing Grounds to close for upgrades Image

By Ed McLeish

Having got the most out of its cubic arts spaces for a variety of creative uses since its last renovation in 2015, Southbank’s Testing Grounds is temporarily shutting for three weeks for an internal renovation.

When the public space re-opens on October 1, it will comprise new shared artist studios, which 15 new artists will move into over a six-month period, according to Testing Grounds curator Arie Rain-Glorie.

“Exhibition visitors can expect to see freshly painted walls and new interior décor,” Mr Glorie said.

The artist application process started in August and will be welcoming both local and international artist displays.

Mr Glorie said Testing Grounds’ community outdoor grounds would remain a place of interdisciplinary practice, experimentation and courage.

“Testing Grounds is a place where people at all levels can test, develop and share their work; we encourage both creative and education-related activities,” Mr Glorie said.
