Dylan Martorell
Work by Dylan Martorell

Critical Mobility is a project run by BUS projects, an artist-run space that operates out of Donkey Wheel House in Melbourne, as part of the State of Design Festival. The project consists of a truck, fitted out to contain a performance and exhibition space, which will appear at various locations throughout Melbourne, from the 20th of July until the 5th of August. The truck will be a space for the artists/performers Ros Bandt, Michael Fowler, Dylan Martorell and SIBLING to perform and create new and innovative work, which engages with debates and ideas surrounding the role of art in a public space which has become globalised.

This is public art with a difference. Critical Mobility goes back to society's hunter-gatherer roots, while questioning the hyper-globalised nature of our public spaces. Imagine a great, hulking beast of a truck, trundling slowly along the roads and byways of Melbourne CBD and surrounds, stopping off to collect audiences, and dropping new ideas and sounds along its path, as a kind of marker of its own movement, a map of the public space that is the city, a path along which it can find its way back to its home, which is presumably in someone's dingy garage in Footscray.

The dates and venues can be found here.

The opening night is on the 20th of July at the ACCA forecourt from 9 until 11pm, and will feature a performance curated by Jared Davis.

The closing night will be on the 5th of August at Footscray train station from 6 until 8pm, featuring the sequel to the performance seen on opening night.

There will be a public forum on the 6th of August at Big West Festival Offices in Footscray from 2 until 3pm.

More details can be found at BUS Projects' website.

Looks like it's going to be fun.
