RMIT Intersect

RMIT Intersect  - Hero Image

RMIT Intersect is a collection of six creative projects located across RMIT University’s City Campus. We offer a dynamic program of exhibitions, international residency programs, talks, public art projects and events that contribute to the University’s research and education focus. RMIT Intersect connects people through art by creating onsite real-time opportunities for creative experimentation, cross-cultural dialogue and global mobility. At its core, this project believes that one of the best ways to enable and generate a great discussion is to simply shorten the physical distance between two ideas. 

The School manages INTERSECT — six creative projects that together form a dynamic program of exhibitions, residencies, creative laboratories, talks and events. These are PROJECT SPACE, SPARE ROOM, SITUATE, SITE EIGHT, the LIGHTSCAPES and SPEAKER.

Exhibition Spaces

PROJECT SPACE is a gallery that links prominent exemplars of practice-based research with Melbourne’s creative communities through a dynamic program of contemporary art projects.

SPARE ROOM is the gallery adjacent to PROJECT SPACE. It is a small space for large ideas—a keyhole into rich conversations, blue skies and deep dives. The gallery program is aligned both conceptually and temporally with its neighbour; exhibitions launch and run concurrently with projects organised to inform, relate and or counterpoint one another. 

SITE EIGHT is a gallery situated in the heart of the School. It derives its name from its physical location in room 8 of RMIT's building 2. SITE EIGHT is a dynamic multi-purpose art space that professionally services the various needs of the School’s programs and student communities. While the gallery has maintained an ad hoc public program of exhibitions in the past, it is currently used privately by the various cohorts of the School.

Residency & Public Programs

SITUATE is a residency program for artists, curators and researchers. SITUATE connects people through art by creating onsite real-time opportunities for creative experimentation, cross-cultural dialogue and global mobility. At its core, this project believes that one of the best ways to enable and generate a great discussion is to simply shorten the physical distance between two ideas. SITUATE manages four kinds of residencies:

  • Reciprocal Residencies, where we send RMIT-affiliated artists overseas on a residency and receive an international artist from the same partner;
  • Teaching Residencies, where we invite in artist into the School to teach and engage with our students;
  • Partnership Residencies, where we work with a local or international partner to invite an artist to work on a project in Melbourne; and
  • Graduate Residencies, where we send recent graduates abroad to further develop their practice outside of the institution.

SPEAKER is a series of talks by contemporary artists, thinkers and curators. It is a space to come together to listen to, think about and discuss a range of ideas, art practices and cultural issues. SPEAKER is presented by RMIT School of Art, Art+History+Theory+Cultures and INTERSECT. The talks are open to the public and take place in lecture halls across RMIT's city campus.

Public Art Sites

LIGHTSCAPES is a public art project that connects to the very fabric of the city—enriching, critiquing and reconsidering notions of audience, site and public space through art. It is comprised of 14 light boxes fixed to building facades across RMIT and Melbourne Central.
