Time Out says

Founded in 2001, Bus Projects is one of Melbourne’s busiest artist-run initiatives, with upwards of 50 exhibitions per year across multiple gallery spaces, as well as music events, experimental art programs and educational workshops.

It’s firmed itself up as one of Melbourne’s foremost contemporary galleries showcasing local, national and international art. Their exhibition schedule comprises artists who apply through an open call, as well as curated projects and exhibition series. They also have a small library and bookshop, so you can satiate all your art-reading needs.

Since opening, Bus Projects occupied three different buildings as well as temporary spaces: on Little Lonsdale St, Donkey Wheel House, and currently, under John Wardle Architects in Collingwood. There’s also a small cafe next door, so you can grab a coffee before heading in to see the exhibitions. The current director is Channon Goodwin, the curator is Kathryne Genevieve Honey, and the curator of public programs is Nina Mulhall.
