Bus Projects, one of Melbourne’s longest running independent art spaces, is on the move and is celebrating with a huge closing party at their home of nine years in Little Lonsdale Street on Saturday 20th March.
Melbourne’s art community are banding together to show their support for this pivotal sound/art/experimental music venue with performances from local outfits including Snawklor (Nathan Gray, Dylan Martorell + Duncan Blachford), Gugg, Super Star, Chrome Dome and Fatti Frances alongside DJ’s Helen Johnson, Andy McClelland and Jason Heller with Lulu Quintella and a performance piece by Sian and the Velantas.
Artists including Norkiro Nakamura and Nat McQuade will be kicking off a wall-art installation in the gallery, which will be open to party goers to make their mark on a huge mural inside the soon to be demolished building.
Opening in 2001, Bus Projects is an independent art space with a focus on artists engaged in a spatial art practice. That is, any practice that uses its environment as a context to its staging such as sound art, performance, installation, video and the cross-pollination of these forms. Bus Projects continues to take an active role in the professional development of artists and curators through range of workshops and forums and all is not over for this seminal arts space.
