Factory 49 is a non-profit exhibition space in Sydney, Australia. The program specifically caters to non-objective, concrete, materials-based and often process-driven practices. For over ten years the space has provided a greatly valued platform for experimentation and exposure in these fields. The opportunity to share and collaborate, and the connections that have developed between individual artists and artists’ groups are among the many benefits of involvement. With visiting artists coming from across Australia and around the world, the international outlook of the program is underscored by two Factory 49 residency projects offered in Paris, France this year. Other similar international projects are currently under proposal.

Factory 49 is based in Marrickville in Sydney, Australia. Since its foundation in 2006, Factory 49 has specialised in exhibiting work that is non-objective, reductive and abstract. Accordingly, it has consistently provided a valuable space for experimental projects and exhibition opportunities for artists working in this field. As well as promoting artists from across Australia, a number of international artist exchanges and opportunities have occurred, enabling a wide exhibition of work, as well as generating exchanges, connections and dialogue along global networks. For Supermarket 2017 Factory 49 has selected emerging and mid career artists whose work is located within the field of non-objective and reductive abstraction – this is not only an art historical context, but is also a source of visual vocabulary to be mined and utilised expansively in a contemporary context. While the forms may be familiar they embody an attitude of challenge towards their history, materials, process and modes of display. This is Factory 49’s first participation in Supermarket Art Fair. Factory 49 is a non-profit association operated by a management committee of practising artists.
