Opens 14th July 2021
Light and Dark is a group exhibition featuring contemporary artists Chris Henschke, Phd, Jenna Lee, Jason Sims, Meagan Streader, and James Tapscott. Exploring the potentials and limits of light, these artists have created sculptural works that interact and influence each other.
Coinciding with the show will be a panel discussion on the way that integrated public art has changed radically over the last decade. This includes the implementation of community consultation, environmental considerations, and creating a true integration with the built environment. ‘Public Art Now’ will discuss the implications of these drastic changes, and consider who has been affected by it.
Panel Discussion: ‘Public Art NOW’
Thursday 15th July, from 6.00pm at MARS Gallery
Panellists: Artist Lisa Roet; Public Art Project Lead at the City of Melbourne, Amy Barclay; Manager Urban Design and Urban Planning, Lisa Dunlop
