Art collectors Susan Taylor and Peter Jones have a particular interest in early conceptual art practices of the 1960s and 1970s, especially as they relate to interventions in the landscape, inversions of the white-cube gallery space and other performative and text based practices which radically expanded the conceptions of what could be considered as art in the late 20th Century  — replacing the object of art with arguments about art.

Taylor and Jones occasionally present thematic exhibitions at their house-gallery under the name Spare Room 33, generously sharing with local audiences carefully selected displays of artworks, photographic documentation and exhibition ephemera from their private collection and archives.

In conjunction with Out of Place, curator Oscar Capezio and Peter Jones have selected significant early works made within Australia by artists Mel Ramsden and Robert Rooney, along with examples from the earth art movement by the prominent British artist Richard Long, and importantly, printed matter related to less well known American female artists Mary Miss and Jackie Windsor.
