'Ten out of 10' Adam Norton, Newell Harry, Mitch Cairns, Christopher Hanrahan, Ms & Mr, Emma White, Gemma Smith, Rob McHaffie, Justin Trendall and Daniel Mudie Cunningham.
Ten out of 10 will celebrate 10 years of successful and diverse exhibitions supporting local artists and promoting contemporary visual arts in Sydney.
To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of MOP Projects we will exhibit the work of 10 now established artists who have strong historical connections to the gallery: Adam Norton, Newell Harry, Mitch Cairns, Christopher Hanrahan, Ms & Mr, Emma White, Gemma Smith, Rob McHaffie, Justin Trendall, and Daniel Mudie Cunningham.
MOP Projects was formed in 2003 by a group of artists at a small rag trade warehouse space in Redfern. It was established in response to a lack of artist-run spaces in Sydney and the demand for an independent platform to exhibit young, emerging and established artists in a creative and experimental environment.
In 2008 MOP Projects moved to its current Chippendale location and has continued to expand its program and reputation. MOP Projects has developed partnerships and exchange shows with a range of galleries and organisations including UTS Gallery, Sydney; Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo; Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, Sydney; Inflight, Hobart; SafARI, Sydney; 24HR Art, Darwin; BUS, Melbourne; University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba; RAID Projects, Los Angeles; and Helen Gory Galerie, Melbourne.
MOP Projects has presented over 300 exhibitions and published over 60 catalogues that represent a range of Sydney, interstate and international artists. Many artists who have exhibited with MOP Projects early in their career have gone on to develop successful artistic careers and/or achieve commercial, representation.
The 10th anniversary exhibition will be held on the 5th to 24th March, 2013 during Art Month.
MOP Projects is assisted by the NSW Government through Arts NSW
