Located in the Degraves street underpass that Melburnians know so well as the kitsch space lurking beneath Flinders Street Station, now there's even more of a reason to explore the underground. Campbell Arcade will be displaying 'Prevaricated Frequencies' by Skunk Control . The launch of the space and the opening of the exhibition began on the 25th of June and will go through to the 5th of September 2015.
This opening exhibition is by a group of engineers and scientists who are Skunk Control, known for their inventive approach to communicate science through art and art through science. Check it out as their installation is bound to grab your attention.
The City of Melbourne has reactivated the glass cabinets in Campbell Arcade for use as an exhibition space for the creatives. These glass cabinets have been renamed 'The Dirty Dozen' and is part of the City of Melbourne's Creative Spaces program. It's a great way for artists to get exposure while it inspires commuters passing through one of Melbourne's oldest underpass. It's a way to attract and retain artists that contribute to Melbourne being a creative city and bolstering it's reputation for new, innovative and experimental art.
Creative Spaces is an award winning City of Melbourne program that sources, develops and manages affordable space for creative people and organisations. This program currently manages 130 spaces that house over 150 artists.
The Dirty Dozen display cases are available to creative practitioners from all disciplines through an application process. If you're an artist, engineer, architect, designer or professional with strong creative work, The City of Melbourne would like to hear from you via an application to exhibit in the space.
Five exhibitions a year are planned, each running approximately 8 weeks. Applications are being taken till the 24th of July. The Dirty Dozen is funded by a different sponsor each year and therefore the exhibition spaces are provided free of charge to successful applicants. For further information please call (03) 9658 9658.
