Since 2011, Yarra City Art's projector has been lighting up the Bob Rose Stand at the former home of the Collingwood Football Club. In 2016 and 2018 the projector relocated to Peel Street Park in Collingwood for a very popular series of projections over the winter months.
The massive, red-brick wall in the park has become a cinematic-screen for a series of large-scale still and moving image artworks which are projected every night after dark, until just before dawn. In the past few years, City of Yarra has presented a dynamic series of projections in Peel Street Park by emerging to established artists.
By popular demand the projection program returned to Peel Street Park in 2019 (corner of Peel and Little Oxford Streets, Collingwood). This year we have teamed up with Yarra Youth Services and we are excited to be presenting a dynamic series of projections including one by a talented young, emerging artist.
1 May to 30 September 2019, every night after dark until 4am.
Have you tried... shutting up, mate?' perspectives on chronic pain and illness by Madeleine Cleeve Gerkens with Daniella Ranitiis is currently on display in the light boxes until 4 August, 2019.
Previous projections have included works by Salote Tawale, Martine Corompt, Steven Rhall, Angela Tiatia, Amanda Wright, Amanda Morgan, Georgia Robenstone, Josh Muir, Elizaveta Maltserva and Malkolm McKinnon.
