crops from their own country here and pick from the
gardens cared for by people with a disability and students.
All images are welcome in any media (photography, drawing, painting, instal-

Sydney’s newest public art initiative is launching on 21.09.12.
Utilising two display cabinets between the platforms at St. James Station
and a third at Museum Station, the Conductors Project pulls artists out of
the gallery and into the public forum.
We’re proud to announce Phil James’ Smilex:Redux as our first project.
Wit, irony and irreverence are something sadly lacking from the daily commute.
Thankfully, Phil’s work has those things in spades and with two solo shows
already under his belt this year, Phil James is set to continue turning heads.
Future programming will feature Remnim Alexander Tayco,
Justin Balmain and Zap with more to be announced soon.
Committed to exhibiting the work of emerging and
established artists, Conductors Project endeavours to connect
artists to new audiences and enrich the lives of Sydney’s commuters.

Our focus is on showcasing the breadth and diversity of Australia’s creative talent, connecting artists, makers and designers with people who appreciate work made by hand, heart and soul.
We aim to make art more accessible by offering a no commission structure on sales making the price on the work what the artist determines as the value of the piece.
For artists & designers to show work with us we rent spaces from $44 – $110 per week for our shop floor and between $300-$385 (incl. GST) per week for prime window and wall real estate.
