support the autopsy

We are wanting to rally your support with a fund raiser for our independent space here in Melbourne, Australia. I respect you and your time limits, but hope we can arrange something to rock us all!

I know it sometimes seems as if everyone wants something for free - I hope you don't see it like this - Instead see it as a chance to help lift an independent art space a little further off the ground.

Many of the traditional and well estabilished art spaces frown upon new and independent art spaces which makes it difficult to become estabilished and a force to be reckoned with here in Australia. Yes Australia is a ultra conservative country in many aspects still.


We are running a fund raising show at the Autopsy Gallery based on the theme of ULTRA MODERN CONSERVATISM - Each artist will be set to work on paper measuring A5 (148mm by 210mm) to explore the theme.

You can work in any medium of your liking - Just hit that theme with passion and we shall look after the rest!

All works will be sold for $100.00 to 250.00 and the money raised will be used to assist us at the gallery to develop our space even further which we run in conjunction with our day jobs. It is a dream we want to keep dreaming!!!

We are supporting local and international artists in our space - We want to keep doing this and allow young and up and coming artists to have somewhere they can come and develop whilst mixing with estabilished artists from our generation. We are exhibiting Merda, Ben Frost, Jose Parla, Stormie Mills, Robert Hardgrave, Mr Jago, Remi Rough, etc, etc - Such fundraisers will help us help artists and the art community to take things further.

As many of you know we are a small, independent gallery space located in St Kilda East, Melbourne, Australia - The Autopsy proudly represents outsider, iconoclastic artists on a local and international level.

The Autopsy has grown through friendship and the Basefield Projects which raised money for charity during 2001 through to 2003. Some of the artist’s that have supported us in the past, include Merda, Doze Green, Geoff McFetridge, Tobin Yelland, Kid Acne, Kev Grey, Niko Stumpo, Maya Hayuk, Stormie Mills, Remi Rough, Evan Hecox, Mephisto Jones, Norm AWR MSK, Christofer Chin, Steven Harrington, Lee Misenhiemer, Dmote, Delta, Rinzen, Fafi, Derrick Hodgson, Mike Giant, Geoff McFetridge, Tim Biedron, Cody Hudson, Mr Jago, Misery, Ben Frost, Richard Colman, Travis Millard, Michael Leon, Sam Flores and Dalek to name a few.

We hope that you see our vision and choose to help us push for the next level here in Melbourne, Australia!
