Melbournians are invited to experience ART+MEL, an immersive two day art event without the white walls on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 November 2014.
Presented by Redbubble, Australia’s finest online marketplace for independent artists, ART+MEL will take local art out of the galleries and onto the streets, with two interactive ‘hot spots’ in the heart of the CBD.
Head quartered and founded in Melbourne, Redbubble represents over 250,000 creatives world-wide, and the event is set to showcase local artists whose work is currently found on the Redbubble website. ART+MEL is designed to bring art into the everyday, encouraging people to experience art through unique creations.
An unexpected bedroom setting and floating gallery at Federation Square will display the original work of over 100 Melbourne artists, with live art courtesy of local illustrator Justine McAllister. Art lovers can grab a free Code Black coffee at Federation Square before moving on to witness a pop-up installation by prominent street artists Kaitlin Beckett and Matthew Dunn, and watch as they add another layer of vibrance to one of Melbourne’s infamous laneways.
