In response to the announcement earlier this year that the Melbourne Art Fair will not take place in 2016 an alliance of leading Melbourne and Sydney galleries have initiated a new art event to be held during Melbourne Art Week this August titled 602.

With the support of the City of Melbourne, Art Month, Art Money & Work Club this alliance of galleries will be exhibiting in a former electricity substation at 602 Little Bourke Street from Thursday the 17th to Sunday the 21st of August.

The energy of 602 finds its roots in the rough and tumble Berlin style of creative collaboration, nine sophisticated art galleries exhibiting in the basement of a raw industrial space promises a fresh urban experience for collectors, curators and audiences interested in the visual arts in Australia.
