GALLERY NIGHT | Nicholas Building Up Late – Blindside

Level 7 Room 14, Nicholas Building, 37 Swanston Street, Melbourne

Blindside Debut XVIII: Livin’ On A Prayer

It has been a long 2 years. Debut XVIII: Livin’ On A Prayer comprises of new artworks from Bec Martin, Brigid Meredith, Caitlin Aloisio Shearer, Christopher Theofanous, Johanna van der Linden, Matthew Ware, Panayiotis Kasseris and Serena Hart. Curated by Nikos Pantazopoulos from RMIT and Sanja Pahoki from the VCA, we selected recent graduates’ artworks that cut through the malaise and made us feel something. Works that were not necessary the loudest but were made by recent graduates whom we imagined sitting in the back of the classroom observing and finding space to be heard from the loud daily politics. The artworks chosen are loosely organised around themes to do with spirituality, religion, family and death.

GALLERY NIGHT is presented as part of the Broadsheet LATE NIGHTS program, and is supported by City of Melbourne through the Events Partnership Program (EPP).
