Sydney Non Objective Contemporary Art Projects is an artist run initiative which was originally located in Marrickville. It was established in 2005 to provide an alternative critical position within contemporary Australian art, supported by a curated public education and exhibition program. The Rosebery gallery, situated only 6 km from the Sydney CBD, is easily found via public transport.
SNO operates as a research centre with a focus on non-objective art in all its forms, developing and presenting new ideas to a wide audience. This includes contemporary readings of historical artistic and curatorial positions. Since 2005 the curated public exhibition program has generated 165 monthly exhibitions showing more than 400 artists from Australia and overseas. It focuses on visual art, sound, performance and writing with an education program that includes seminars, lectures, artist talks and publications.
In developing this cross-platform approach SNO has established a number of important projects with specific aims. This includes embracing the temporal arts as a core part of the program, a focus on providing support to young and emerging artists, the creation of intergenerational relationships by linking emerging and established artists, the development of international networks with similar artist collectives in Europe, Asia and the US, a resulting series of international exchanges and exhibitions, a publishing hub along with regular lectures and seminars aimed at increasing awareness of contemporary non-objective art.
