Taken from the MPavilion website:
UPTOWN art exhibition has been devised to reactivate the city centre and unite retailers, visual artists, property owners and the City of Melbourne. The exhibition (15 December – 28 February) has reimagined the top of Bourke Street as a 24/7 outdoor gallery and used vacant shops, windows, architecture and laneways as the frame for a very different type of visual art exhibition.
Working with MPavilion’s MRelay format, the curators of UPTOWN will present an actioned-packed morning of speakers primed to discuss the role of artists and designers in Melbourne’s future. UPTOWN co-curators, Fiona Scanlan and Robert Buckingham, have joined forces with MPavilion and Turning Circle Collective to explore how artists and designers have contributed to the cultural and economic life of Melbourne in the past and how they can help Melbourne regain its mojo.
Invited speakers include:
Kent Morris (artist and curator)
