Now in its ninth year, the local artists and businesses for High St Northcote are teaming up yet again to bring art out onto the street and into the unexpected.
For two weeks, there will be sculptures, installations, paste ups, installations, paintings and almost anything else you can think of! And there will be light.
In a first for Northern Exposure, the north section of Eastment St will be transformed into a trail of illuminated discovery for the inquisitive viewer, with large-scale video mapping of several iconic buildings along High St, including the Town Hall and the Old Bank.
Over eighty artists are involved in the festival, creating art around the theme “Change”. Visitors can explore the length of High St, seeking the windows, nooks and crannies of over fifty local businesses.
To add to the atmosphere, art related workshops, tours and events will be hosted on the evening of the launch and throughout the two-week duration of the exhibition as well.
Launch night is on Friday 12 July, 6PM at 251 High St Northcote, with performances by local band The Ferbelows and the Northland Collage of Art and Technology Ukulele Collective.
