Carlton Library (667 Rathdowne Street, Carlton North) is an important facility in our community.
The public art light boxes are located on the exterior wall of the library on Newry Street, near the corner of Rathdowne Street.
The light boxes enhances the library’s profile and the surrounding streetscape. The light boxes makes contemporary art part of everyday life in Yarra.
Exhibitions at this site are a series of four images and are programmed for six months. We ask for expressions of interest for artists to exhibit in the light boxes. We pay successful applicants a fee to help with development and presentation costs.
Kirsten Lyttle’s series Te Ao Moemoea/The Land of Dreaming is currently on display in the light boxes until 21 September 2019.
Previous commissions for the Carlton Library light boxes have included works by Irene Finkelde, David-Ashley Kerr, Vivian Cooper Smith, Emma Anna, Mathilde Magnée, Narelle Cridland, Ralf Kempken, Kyoko Imazu, Jeremy Blincoe and Siri Hayes.
