threeOclock is a visual arts program that is passionate about the semi-public spaces and socially engaged art. We like to have fun and stage challenging and interesting (and sometimes very animated) conversations through art.

We believe without dialogue there is no impact and without impact, there is no solution, so we work with emerging and established Australian artists to explore critical social and environmental issues.

Our exhibitions are project-based and our program features installation work, sculpture, film, photography and public conversation series.

In 2016, we created a pop-up gallery space on the upper level of Southgate on Melbourne's Southbank – sneaking out into its public spaces, with film and performance-based works. Here our artists explored different exhibition themes and their answers were framed around a central focus that interrogated topics such as ‘Oceans’ ‘Diversity’ ‘Women’ and ‘Proximity’.

At Southgate, we hosted four fabulous emerging artists.   Residing in the gallery they were busy creating and featuring works with a number of our exhibitions.

We are now on the move stay tuned to see where we pop up next.
