Call out to residents!
Join the biggest, boldest public art program ever seen in Kingston!
Curators David Cross and Cameron Bishop together with a stellar group of artists will lead SIX MOMENTS IN KINGSTON, a dynamic series of six public artworks set in sites around Kingston.
Video artist and animator Laresa Kosloff, ‘craftivist’ Tal Fitzpatrick, curator and artist Spiros Panigirakis, multidisciplinary collective Field Theory, conceptual artist Steven Rhall and performance artist Shane McGrath, respond to infamous stories from Kingston in 1970s and 80s, including the mysterious disappearance of aviator Fred Valentich who flew out from Moorabbin airport in 1978 never to be seen again; a celebration of globally successful Parkdale-raised rocker Rick Springfield; the election of Moorabbin’s first female councillor and mayor, Julie Cooper, in 1976; and VFL player Phil Carman’s notorious head-butting incident at Moorabbin Oval resulting in a 20-week suspension.
SIGN UP! with family and friends to remake Kingston’s history! Join music, performance, dance, visual art, historic research, storytelling and craft activities, work with artists, and develop a creative response to each story. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
Audiences will step back in time, climbing aboard a magical mystery bus tour to revisit original sites where each event took place. Tours depart Kingston Arts Centre 18-19 and 25-26 May 2019. More information soon! Tickets on sale early April 2019
Six Moments in Kingston is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria. The Creative Suburbs program is an initiative of the Victorian Government’s Creative State strategy. The program supports outer metropolitan councils to undertake new creative projects or programs that give locals opportunities to get involved in high-quality creative experiences on their doorstep.
