Now in its tenth year, RM (formerly Room103 and Room) is Auckland’s longest running artist-run-project space. At the heart of the rm-project is its gallery, supporting the work of local artists through short-run shows and extended projects, whilst continuing to develop interactions and exchanges with artist-run-projects throughout Australia and Europe. The rm-project also encompasses a number of satellite projects, including SHOP103 (a venue for multiple artworks and editions) and the Dear Reader mail-art project, as well as producing work as a collective—most recently with the festival tote-bag Carry-On rm103, and a shoe-shining fundraiser. Recent rm-project publications have included SOAP magazine and Nights of our Lives—a book of art dreams.

S/F merges at least 3 forms of production and dissemination – art, design, and print – through its operation as a shop, design studio, project space, exhibition venue, niche publishing house and pocket-scaled laboratory for urban aesthetics and collaborative thinking. The project’s title also alludes to Duchamp’s infamous fountain – S/F sees its gradations between commerce, art, ideas and printed matter as speculative, experimental, and adaptable.
S/F stages art exhibitions that change every six weeks or so; working with artists as well as designers and architects. The space and furniture are rearranged regularly to accommodate the special requirements of each new exhibition. S/F has its own publishing imprint, producing publications, newspapers and artists’ editions. As a shop/reading-room, it also stocks an ever-expanding range of local and international art and design catalogues, print editions, artworks, and small run publications unavailable elsewhere in the country.
