Grant Pirrie to close its doors

Exterior of Grant Pirrie's soon to close Redfern space

Following months of speculation, Sydney commercial space Grant Pirrie has officially announced its closure.  In a joint statement released on Friday, owners Stephen Grant and Bridget Pirrie said: “Today we have decided to finish the gallery, but Grantpirrie will live on.”  How?  The couple has hinted that the gallery’s project-based initiatives may continue offshore, with a focus on building international audiences.  Cold comfort for the gallery artists now forced to look elsewhere for representation in Sydney…

The gallery’s last day of business is October 15th.
