Object Space is our window gallery located at the Australian Design Centre HQ on William Street, Darlinghurst, on view 24 hours a day.

A creative exchange between Australian Design Centre and Canberra’s Gallery of Small Things (GOST), Hope presents two simultaneous exhibitions in each venue, bringing NSW and ACT-based makers to new audiences.
