Art Melbourne 2012 Giveaway!

art melbourne Art Melbourne 2012 Giveaway!

Every year I visit Art Melbourne, Melbourne’s affordable art fair, and this year you could visit too…for free!

Art Melbourne is held in the grandiose Royal Exhibition Building and it is a hive of original, affordable, interesting art to suit every taste. As well as the 4 day exhibition there are talks, demonstrations, music, food and drinks plus the best thing is that you can chat to gallerists and artists directly about work.

This year they have a special event on Friday 25 May. You know that singer Gotye and his little ditty ‘Someone I used to know’? Well, artist Emma Hack and Gotye will be collaborating on a photographic piece exclusively for charity during at Art Melbourne 2012. The work will not be a recreation of the video still from ‘Someone I used to know’ but something made specifically for auction, with proceeds going to  The Thin Green Line and Make-A-Wish Australia.

Giveaway! Thanks to Art Melbourne I have 10 x double passes to any days of Art Melbourne to give away. To win all you have to do is leave a comment and the 10 winners will be drawn randomly on Monday 21 May so that the passes can be posted out to you in time. Good luck!
