A unique multidisciplinary venue, fortyfivedownstairs has a strong history of presenting new and innovative art to Melbourne audiences.
Located in Melbourne’s CBD, fortyfivedownstairs has two exhibition spaces and a flexible theatre and event venue, which operate all year round. One floor below street level, the gallery exhibits a diverse range of art forms, including photography, drawing and sound art.
One floor further still, down in the building’s basement, the warehouse-style theatre space offers an extraordinary array of groundbreaking works in theatre, cabaret, music, opera and dance. One week you could be attending a classical music recital. The next, the world premiere of a new Australian play featuring award-winning actors.
