Established in 2002, Lanfranchi’s was an artist-run space located in Chippendale. Over a period of four years it ran as a dedicated studio and performance space for a diverse collective of musicians, visual, sound and new media artists, as well as writers, journalists, arts workers and music publishers. In this time, the space hosted many established and emerging artists from interstate and overseas. The main objective of the initiative was to create and facilitate interesting new projects which could not afford to hire conventional spaces, or which simply don’t fit the restrictions normally imposed. Lanfranchi's shut its doors on the 25th June 2007. Archives of activities that took place during those five years are available via the group's Flickr feed.
