& Gallery is a Melbourne based gallery specialising in sculptural practice, located in The Upper West Side Tower, 220 Spencer St (between Lt Bourke & Lonsdale St).
Prior to its opening, the team at djprojects had noticed the lack of sculpture galleries in Melbourne, and jumped at the opportunity to open a sculpture based gallery.
Since its inception in 2015, & gallery has had huge success with solo exhibitions, including Jason Waterhouse, Ryan F Kennedy, as well as groups exhibitions bringing together artists from Australia and overseas alike.

Studio 513 brings to Radiant Pavilion a conversation about the city; how the city influences our work, how it is reflected in our work and how the urban experience materialises in it..
While the work of each individual artist is not strongly related to the others in a visual way, material form or work methods, it nevertheless shares the city and the urban environment as its theme.
In each instance the work demands certain behaviours by the wearer who engages with the chosen piece through kinetic movement, folding and unfolding, opening and closing, or through a consideration of the city grid which has been transformed into miniature wearable sculptures. In other works the materiality of the urban environment is chosen to become an exploration of jewellery as an expression of urban culture.
