You may not known him by the name Tyrone Wright, but no doubt you would've discovered his work as RONE. Geelong Gallery will be celebrating this home-grown artist with an exhibition from 27 February to 16 May 2021.
Over the last two decades, RONE has built an exceptional reputation for transforming abandoned spaces worldwide, including his sell-out installation, EMPIRE, at Burnham Beeches in 2019.
RONE in Geelong will include early stencil works and street art to photographs that document his transformation of abandoned spaces across the globe.
A collaboration with interior stylist Carly Spooner, RONE will take visitors on a journey through a unique commissioned installation transforming one of the gallery's most significant room from a grand reception venue to a derelict site. It will incorporate his signature painted murals and a haunting new soundtrack by composer and collaborator Nick Batterham.
There will be a few events during RONE in Geelong include A day out - Beauty and decay, Talking Art: RONE and Carly Spooner, RONE in Geelong by Geelong Symphony Orchestra, Celebrating Youth Week with RONE and Urban art workshop.
