If you're looking to do something completely different, and dare to bare, Spencer Tunick's Return of the Nude installation in the iconic Chapel Street Precinct just might be the ticket for you. Returning to Melbourne this July as the headline artist of Chapel Street's PROVOCARÉ Festival of the Arts 2018, internationally renown contemporary artist Tunick; a New Yorker, is here this July to create 2 days of phenomenal nude installations. The event will go through, rain, hail or shine, so if you're prepared to go nude for Spencer, fill in the Registration Form HERE. You need to be 18 years or over to participate in this event.
Participant numbers are limited for this particular project, unlike his other installations, so if you don't get chosen, it just means the quota has been filled. For those of you who are chosen, you'll be notified closer to time via email. CLICK HERE for other important information and frequently asked questions. The installation will require you to be fully nude and the organisers reserve the right to refuse entry to participants. You will not be paid for participating, but you'll be forever encapsulated in print through time, and will be given a free limited-edition print of the installation in exchange for participating.
Tunick's photographic installations use the nude body as raw material as an artist would with paint to canvas. He transforms a chosen site, then records it via photography and video. His temporary site-specific installations involve up to several hundred figures arranged in public places. You won't be waiting nude for too long at a time, just while he's arranging bodies in place.
If you're looking to be a part of something big and brave and dare to become a part of Tunick's landscape of nudes, get onto it. Tunick's last two Australian visits were in 2001 (Melbourne - The Unfamiliar Familiar) and 2010 (Sydney Opera House - The Base). Everyone is welcome to participate, no matter your body shape, ability, gender or race. Chapel Street is the canvas, and as part of a provocative and challenging festival of the arts, you'll need to lose your inhibitions to be part of this experience.
