FREE tours of some amazing light displays

The spotlight is on Frankston with these incredible projection displays. It's another "rug-up in winter event" so wear lots of layers and enjoy the spectacle which will take you from the gallery to Frankston's CBD.

The contemporary media artwork are by local, national and international artists. These are projected onto and within the buildings.

One of the most unusual displays is an inside installation by South Korean artist, Everyware, who brings you The Wall'.

With this installation you can engage in some bad behaviour not usually permitted within art galleries. They supply balls which you throw at the walls and then watch as these surfaces shatter like glass. Once you get into the rhythm of it you will find you are making your own temporary artwork.

Internationally renowned artist Ian de Gruchy specialises in large scale digital art projections. This year he is illuminating Frankston Arts Centre's exterior with a riot of pattern and colour.

One of the highlights is that you can book a guided or curated tour, beginning at the festival hub Cube 37 at Frankston Arts Centre.

Curator Matthew Perkins will guide these special tours in which he highlights the national and international works featured in exURBAN SCREENS.

Tour numbers are limited and bookings are essential.

Tours also offer complimentary refreshments.
