SLOT is a window gallery bringing art installations to the street. SLOT is a window gallery located at one of Sydney’s busiest intersections – the corner of Botany and Henderson Roads in Redfern. Viewed from the street 24 hours a day, it has presented in excess of 50 art exhibitions since 2003. SLOTs focus is its neighbourhood, a definition that extends to regional neighbours in Southeast Asia. The installations presented respond to both the physical parameters of SLOT as a vitrine and its location on the street. The SLOT project is expanded through the SLOT website with writings, the zine Asian Art Report, virtual projects and happenings in the SLOT studio.   

Opening Hours 24 hours - Slot is not open in the traditional sense but can be viewed from the street 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

SLOT does not follow a traditional gallery model, we are viewed from the footpath and since 2003 we have been presenting exhibitions that engage our commuter and pedestrian audience. SLOT became an Incorporate Association in 2006 and has a small dedicated membership. 2009 began with the fifth anniversary of SLOT, a project supported by the City of Sydney council, which recreated our past exhibitions in empty shop windows along Regent Street. We will begin our publishing program this year with a monograph on the work of Tony Twigg: “Encountering the Object” and the virtual quarterly publication, the Asian Art Report.
