HOT: We Are Sorry, 620-640 Little Bourke St, Melbourne

One of the joys of Melbourne is that you never know what you’ll find down a hidden alley. Melbourne City Council knows that the alleyways are one of Melbourne’s attractions, so for the past seven years they have commissioned artists to produce site-specific works for laneways and other unusual urban spaces in the CBD.
