ρrαxiς ARTSPACE is an independently run gallery and artist studio located in Bowden, just outside of the Adelaide CBD. Established in August 2015 by Gallery Director Patty Chehade, the Gallery takes its name from the ancient Greek philosopher’s word ‘praxis’ – promoting the act of engaging, applying, exercising, realising or practicing thoughts and ideas.
As a curated exhibition space, Praxis assists and supports distinctive contemporary ventures by artists at all stages of their career. It aims to provide a program of events that includes painting, sculpture, installation art, performance, film and artist talks. Its studios offer an opportunity for resident artists to immerse themselves in their field of practice.
"Some might hanker for simpler times but they are gone. The world is a very complicated place and our artists have a place in telling this complicated story of life. They can show the present and ponder the future." Kathie Stove, 'Island to Outback' catalogue essay
