Melbourne Central is getting an exhibition space, so you can look at some art while you wait for the next train. The Melbourne Central Art Loop will make commutes a little less dreary with its displays of visually compelling video artworks. Although the reception issues in the City Loop have been resolved a few months ago, the new art installation will no doubt add a little something extra to your daily commute.
The inaugural show will be curated by Andy Dinan, director of contemporary art space MARS Gallery in Windsor, and will include short video works by more than 30 artists ranging from internationally renowned to Australian emerging and mid-career artists including Emily Yuting Chen, Diego Ramirez, Erin Coates, James Base, Shaun Wilson and many more.
The Melbourne Central Art Loop is a permanent display and will the largest permanent installation of video art outside of a gallery space in Australia. The art space opens officially on Wednesday March 30, so keep an eye out the next time you get on that Lilydale or Pakenham line.
