A love affair
THE CULT & HARPER EXPERIENCE
The ultimate creative space and studios housed in an historical Port Adelaide building launched itself officially in 2018 with the opening night attracting over 400+ guests.
Cult and Harper has fast become the home of young visionaries pushing the boundaries across various sub cultural platforms including visual art, fashion, youth culture, journalism, music and more. The studios are household to many including co founder Lisa King (arts) and Jarrad Jackson (music) who has already curated two successful exhibitions provoking conversation in gender equality and contemporary art. The space houses a mix of retail, pop ups, residencies, studios and events from prominent names; all striving towards the one end goal; cross pollination, creative radicalism and most fundamentally a platform to present new ideas in arts and culture.
SHOP EAT & create
we are excited to be the home to many small businesses that lie within our 450 sq/m establishment.
The Cult & Harper Gallery is an 100 sq/m Contemporary Art Space located front of house within the 450 sq/m cultural complex. Boasting 3.6m tall walls with full spectrum lighting and exposed concrete floors and ceilings the gallery provides artists that extra room for creative freedom. The space is here to promote and exhibit local and international artists with an expected calendar of 6 - 12 shows per calendar year with opportunity to host events such as launches, fashion shows, cinemas, markets and more.
Cult & Harper Gallery is now open for bookings / hire / applications.
