Window Shopping 3058 style

The Fringe Festival wakes up Merlynston Shopping Centre with contemporary art installations
A Site-specific art exhibition by eight artists Agnes Whalan, Bridget Griffiths, Cara Best, Fern Smith, Josie Alexandra, Melody Greatorex, Ro Noonan and Trent Crawford and curated by Alisha Abate.

The artworks will festoon the shop windows and spill out onto the sidewalks with contemporary motion and installations arresting the foot traffic along the shopping strip of Merlynston Shopping Centre; where boundaries are blurred between public and private space.

Where: Lorensen Avenue:  FernArtz and Maxine Hair Dressing Merlyn Street: The Cubby Bake House & Deli Cafe, Queen of Paws and Welcome Shop Coburg North 3058
When: 14th September to 1st October 2017
Quote: Curator Alisha Abate:
Out of the white cubed gallery space and into the shopping strip of the Northern suburbs. Eight artists will create site-specifically artwork in Coburg North. Stroll along the strips of Lorensen Ave and Merlyn Street, peering into shop windows to see where boundaries are blurred between public and private space, where the artists reference their own personal and museological histories. The shop front window is an inaccessible space, boarded off to the public, but alludes us to look deeper into, inviting us further inside.
