Participants from across Melbourne’s West respond to a project brief that is aligned with the 2022 Melbourne Fringe theme - Future Hindsight.
Mentored by Science Gallery Melbourne’s Head of Curatorial, Tilly Boleyn and Artist and Curatorial
Assistant Arie Glorie, artists draw reference from the SWARM exhibition, contributing a vital role in shifting our understanding of science, art and innovation and making this a program not to be missed.
Artists explore the idea of FORWARD MOTION and the concept of collectives and networks, which are at the heart of this program and align with SWARM’s statement to ‘reflect(s) on the pros and cons of collective behaviour, social movements, artificial intelligence and bio-communities’.
This program is a collaboration between Wyndham City and Hobsons Bay and will be presented as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival. Outcomes include an exhibition in the Wyndham Cultural Centre, as well as large public art installations located at Laneway Gallery and Altona Civic Centre.
