Antecedent Exhibition Opening / Farewell To Toast says
Bid farewell to TOAST, a sound installation by Phil Gamblen, and welcome new site specific works by emerging artists in the Light Locker Art Space at this celebration of temporary public art in Grand Lane.

Grand Lane, an unassuming service alley in the city, has become quite the destination for experiencing temporary public art. The City of Perth's Light Locker Art Space has been showcasing site specific work by emerging artists in the lane since 2011, but earlier this year it was joined by TOAST, a temporary installation by artist Phil Gamblen, commissioned by the Perth Public Art Foundation for perthFLUX.

TOAST, a sound producing kinetic artwork consisting of 40 identically hand-made mechanisms, each repeatedly tapping a wine glass, is sadly coming to an end. However as we say goodbye to this unique temporary public artwork, we celebrate the installation of five new site specific works in the Light Locker Art Space.

Come down to Grand Lane to hear the musical compositions of TOAST one last time and be one of the first to view new work by emerging artists Ruby Smedley, Sioux Tempestt, The Welcome Collective, Steven Finch and Michelle Wells. These new works interpret and represent different aspects of our local history, from notorious criminals to the built (and demolished) environment.

Also on the night:

- Music courtesy of Assembly Line DJs
- Beverages courtesy of a cash bar

Exhibition continues until September, accessible 24/7 but best viewed after dark when the light boxes are illuminated.
