Wow! How fast was that?! @mike.makatron has put the final touches on his new piece at Buzz Barbers - finished in less that two days! Here's a quick snap - more pics to come soon.. #wefo #marimoments #artsandculturemcc #barklyvillage #streetartmelbourne #westfootscray #ihaveathingforwalls #streetWORKS @cityofmaribyrnong
The next StreetWORKS commission in West Footscray is underway! @mike.makatron is on site today and tomorrow working on his amazing design at Buzz Barbers. Mike’s concept includes a classic 1950s vintage American barber’s chair - two of which are still in use at Buzz Barbers and are prized possessions of Aurelio, the barber. The chair sits surrounded by lush, tropical jungle and flying orangutans, referencing the urban jungle and stark contrast between the natural and man-made environments. Mike’s artwork captures a world in which the natural forces contrast sharply with the urbanised world, and focuses on the value of leaving the concrete jungle to reconnect with mother nature. 
Stay tuned to see the finished work! 
For more info on StreetWORKS visit http://bit.ly/2wQ1YfC or pick up the Dec-Jan issue of @thewestsider which includes a feature piece on the program (thanks guys!) #wefo #marimoments #barklyvillage #streetartmelbourne #ihaveathingforwalls #artofboth #artsandculturemcc #wip #streetart #streetart_official @cityofmaribyrnong

The Archival Reflex features a selection of Melbourne based artists whose practice employs a mode of archival logic. Common to each of these artists is that in their negotiation of the images and other documents of private and public histories, they simultaneously draw upon existing archives and actively produce new ones. The exhibition engages with the site and collections of Melbourne’s Living Museum of the West @livingmuseumwest and considers how artists use and create archives in their practice. 
Visit the Living Museum during Open Studios in the West for the opening of this exhibition, 3-5pm Saturday 25 November. Also at LMW is the 2nd yr VCA Painting student’s exhibition, What are Chives For? open from 12-5pm Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 November.

For Svein Koningen @koningen_art abstract inspiration comes from both external influences and of course the internal abstract thinking of a studio artist. He states he never plans an exact work - instead allowing the paint and the internal unconscious to come through. He explores on canvas, the relationship between colour combinations and texture, creating bold exciting abstract art canvases bursting with vibrant colour. His Ned Kelly works, along with the new series Paradesia, will be unveiled during Open Studios in the West.

Visit Svein Koningen at his Living Studio in Yarraville on Saturday 25 November, 11am to 6pm and Sunday 26 November, 1pm to 5pm, and chat to Svein about the artistic process and view his extensive range of artworks on display.

@_kim_vernon_ ’s paintings of rocks, presented as if they were museum exhibits, leave us with the distinct feeling that these inanimate objects are anything but ordinary.  They hint at a childlike obsession and thirst for knowledge that results in amassing such a collection, and also at the awe and wonder we still feel towards the mysterious and the unknown. 
Kim Vernon’s exhibition Collection opens on November 22 at @trocaderoartspace in Footscray and runs until December 9. 
Visit during Open Studios in the West to see this and other exhibitions both at Trocadero Art Space, and at neighbouring gallery Five Walls Projects @five_walls

#StreetWORKS 2017 begins!! #cityofmaribyrnong #wefo #barklyvillage #artsandculturemcc #brazilianartistatwork #indianspicestory
@artofboth has finished her beautiful StreetWORKS commission at @bharat_traders in West Footscray. The site is best viewed in person as there's a lovely tree that makes getting a photo of the full work a bit tricky!

#fringewestside "The True History of the Tragic Life and Triumphant Death of Julia Pastrana, the Ugliest Woman in the World", presented by Peel the Limelight OPENS TONIGHT!
This extraordinary production is on at #bluestonechurchartsspace in #Footscray until 23 September - An unprecedented theatrical experience, the audience will be (and must remain) blindfolded to experience the show. 
Based on true events, the play tells the story of a poor indigenous Mexican woman, born in the 1830s with a disfiguring genetic condition and sold as a child to be exhibited in freak shows around the globe. Peel the Limelight’s production is a sensory performance based on exploitation, discrimination and perception.

Art as a Game Changer - Art for a Cause or a Cause for Art?
#artsandculturemcc is producing #artasagamechanger as part of #melbfringe 2017 – an exciting panel discussion on the role of art and social change.  We’ll be looking at whether there’s an onus on artists to probe fault lines, social protocols and areas of discomfort. Is there an expectation for artists to ‘make a difference’? What about art for art’s sake? 
Registration is essential at artasagamechanger.eventbrite.com.au 
Panellists include @sayraphim @jaxjackibrown Jacinda Richards from @l2r_dance @ianmichaelianmichael and the wonderful not-on-instagram Heather Horrocks! Join us at @footscrayarts on 19 September
