the BIggest public art program in kingston!

Curators David Cross and Cameron Bishop, together with a stellar group of contemporary artists, lead SIX MOMENTS IN KINGSTON, a dynamic series of six public artworks set in sites around Kingston.

Each artwork responds to an infamous local story, including the mysterious disappearance of aviator Fred Valentich in 1978, following his sighting of a UFO; a celebration of globally successful Parkdale rocker Rick Springfield's worldwide hit 'Jessie's Girl'; Phil Carman's infamous headbutting incident at Moorabbin Oval, and the story of Julie Cooper, Moorabbin's first female councillor and Mayor. And much more!   

Hop on board a magical mystery bus tour to visit six delightful artworks in secret locations around Kingston! Each tour lasts under two hours. The bus tour features local stories told by legendary Australian actors, Michael Caton (The Castle) and Kate Fitzpatrick.

Artists:

Laresa Kosloff, video and animation

Steve Rhall, performance and installation

Tal Fitzpatrick, craftivist

Shane McGrath, performance

Field Theory, multidisciplinary art collective

Spiros Panigirakis, sculpture and installations
