Twelve highly acclaimed Australian artists, including Rone, Bindi Cole and Ha Ha!, are showcased in 37°48’S: artists navigate MELBOURNE, an exciting and provocative visual art project and exhibition at Sofitel Melbourne On Collins.
The 12 artists showcased in the exhibition: Angela Cavalieri, Bindi Cole, Judy Holding, Cat Poljski, Debra Luccio, Rone, Rona Green, Eolo Paul Bottaro, Carmel Wallace, Regan Tamanui aka HA! HA! , Heather Shimmen, and Marco Luccio have considered the cultural, natural and built environments of their city, producing work that captures unique insights into Melbourne.
Co-curated by artist and writer, Dr Carmel Wallace, and arts consultant and former director of Gallery 101 Melbourne, Dianna Gold, 37°48’S: artists navigate MELBOURNE sets about to explore the cultural diversity of contemporary Australia as exemplified by life in Melbourne.
Street-art practices and traditional printmaking techniques sit side by side in the 37°48’S: artists navigate MELBOURNE exhibition that will be on show in Sofi’s Lounge at Sofitel Melbourne On Collins from February 2 – March 1, 2015.
The large format, limited edition suite of prints created by the 12 artists was previewed in Melbourne in August 2014 before journeying to New York in October, where it was exhibited alongside a complementary body of work created by the New York Society of Etchers.
The combined exhibition highlighted similarities, differences and crosscurrents between the two cities of Melbourne and New York. The exhibition will travel to the Galeria Gravura Brasileira in Sao Paulo, Brazil in March following its Melbourne season at Sofitel.
