There is a global trend changing the way people view art. And we in Melbourne are never far from new trends.
It’s with this in mind that we welcome Nite Art 2014, a unique new art walk platform in an increasingly competitive cultural landscape that will bring together Melbourne’s emerging and established artists.
Nite Art 2014 is an art walk that connects audiences with art. With eight precincts, 40 art sites, 80-plus artists and growing, the public can explore sites across the city including commercial galleries, artist–run spaces, museums and unusual architectural spaces, highlighting our beloved Melbourne’s architectural and cultural assets through the lens of artistic responses.
Co-created by a group of industry professionals wanting new ways to talk about and experience art in Melbourne, Nite Art enhances the city’s existing gallery scene. In doing so the aim is to cultivate participation, audiences and consumer demand and therefore contributing to creating sustainable careers for artists and curators.
For upcoming artists like Luke Paulding, Sarah Hendy and Eric Demetriou, Nite Art is an essential and significant platform for the elevation of their practice.
“It’s a great opportunity to be connected to a broad arts community through a night like Nite Art,” says Sarah Hendy, who is showcasing her paintings in The Shake of Leir at The Kelvin Club.
“Nite Art creates a platform for all kinds of people and businesses to engage with one another for an evening and I’m excited to be part of that.”
It’s art. It’s at night. It’s in the city. It’s going to be a winner.
