HOT: Collection Tour, NGV International, 180 St Kilda Rd, Southbank

I had originally planned to attend a Henry Purcell lecture at NGV International, but when it was cancelled at the last minute I decided to take a collection tour instead. I’ve never actually explored the permanent exhibition spaces of the NGV and the free tours are a good way to get a taste of what’s […]

HOT: Northern Exposure, High St, Northcote

Anita and I met on a windy, chilly Sunday afternoon for a stroll around Northern Exposure, Northcote’s visual arts festival. The exhibitions included traditional hangings in galleries such as Kick and the grand dame Northcote Town Hall, combined with displays in High Street shopfronts.

These facts make me appreciate living in Melbourne, a city with what I believe is a disproportionally high level of interest and creativity activity in […]

HOT: KK Exports, Guildford Lane Gallery, 202-4 Guildford Ln, Melbourne

Having lived in Melbourne for several years, I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about what was hidden in its mysterious laneways. Not so – I only found out about Guildford Lane today, and discovered that it is the resident of a fabulous (but freezing) warehouse-style art space called the Guildford Lane Gallery. The gallery is […]
