The Waiting Room Project is a liminal space located in the Sydney Sexual Health Centre, of Sydney Hospital. As a way of alleviating the anxiety of a clinical waiting room, the project aims to display contemporary art that changes the way the space is occupied.
This project is for artists, designers, writers and curators who are particularly interested in the site-specificity of this non-white-cube environment and who are responsive to the experience of being in a health centre waiting room.
