Great art. Outdoors.
RED CENTRE returns to Werribee this summer with an outdoor gallery of new, contemporary public art from leading local and Melbourne artists. Curated in a playful nod to the festive season, each artist has been challenged to include the colour red within their work.
Located in the West end of Watton Street, the free outdoor exhibition features six, temporary works encompassing photography, street art, illustration and light-based installations.
Included in RED CENTRE is a new, large-format photographic work from rising star, Atong Atem who has exhibited her work across Australia and internationally and will be featured in the NGV Triennial opening later this year.
Local artist Ceardai Demelza has created a new work with her signature layered, character and textural scenes in a quirky celebration of freedom from lock-down.
Internationally renowned street artist Ash Keating has temporarily painted the front of Wyndham Cultural Centre, complemented by one of Indigo O’Rourke’s hyper-realistic hand drawings on the carpark wall.
Carla Gottgens and local artist Rukz One aka Paul Zahra have brought our pandemic secrets and isolation habits to life and Wedge St Piazza will be festively lit with additions from street artist Buff Diss and local illustrator Jessica Jane, each bringing their distinctive touch to the space.
RED CENTRE will be on show from 27 November – 18 January 2021.
Pair your visit with brunch or dinner on Watton Street (Wedge St Piazza will be particularly special after dark) or take in some of the city’s most iconic street art with the self-guided Werribee Public Art Walking Tour
