Situated on Bay Street in Port Melbourne, [MARS] Melbourne Art Rooms (otherwise known as [MARS] Gallery) was opened in February 2004 by Director, Andy Dinan and has quickly earned a reputation as one of Melbourne’s most exciting and diverse commercial art spaces.
Originally an old dairy, the [MARS] building was neglected and run down during its use as a warehouse and a mechanical workshop. Blending aspects of the old and the new, Andy Dinan remarkably reincarnated the building and transformed [MARS] into a unique space that offers a backdrop of simplicity and generous proportions to showcase outstanding contemporary art from emerging and mid career Australian artists.
