The rich artistic network in Melbourne is no doubt a blessing. Whilst the local talent around is pretty awe-inspiring, some of our events this week hold an international flare. Ian Strange is returning home from the Big Apple for his show Shadow, six artists have come back to Australia from Thailand for the group show Let’s Cross The Sea, and the lineup for It’s Pronounced “GIF,” Not “GIF” come from far and wide.
Travelling does allow us to see our own soundings in a new light, and can often spark inspiration in places we would otherwise ignore in our everyday routine. But for those of us who aren’t quite ready to get jet-setting, my best friend’s mum gave me some advice I pretty much live by – “Change is better than a holiday”. If a plane ticket isn’t really on the books, simply spicing up your weekly routine can do wonders to shift your perspective on the everyday. Yep, it’s always a good idea to suss the local galleries and get some fresh inspo, so without further ado, queue our WYD roll call below.
As always, make sure to let us know WYD by sending your art events to [email protected].
