Black & Blue is an Artist Run Initiative providing a space for young and emerging interdisciplinary artists, performing artists, curators, upstart bands and sound artists. The gallery was developed to facilitate the need for more quality-focused spaces that support young and emerging artists in the community. The warehouse conversion consists of 4 studios and the gallery located in the front of the space. In 2008, the first year of operation, the space showed a total of 14 exhibitions. A focus on interpersonal transactions that comes with showing at Black & Blue has resulted in the gallery becoming a furtive environment for artists whose networks and associations pollinate as the gallery connects and shares it networks with its new artist friends



The Black and Blue Studio also plays host to the Rizzeria - an artist run stencil press co-operative -
