Art in the city

The Melbourne International Arts Festival is on. Last night Chris and I went to see a couple of exhibitions:

Blindside was about turning an artists working space high up in the Nicholas Building into a into a useable living room, a ‘total work of art’. We loved this bed surrounded by speakers and also the big dome tent in the middle of the room which was filled with dirt and planted succulents. You should definitely check it out!

It was really stormy weather as you can see from the view from the window:

We then went to see Kat Mcleod's amazing work at Lamington Drive. So much talent (and most works were already sold when we got there!)
Here's one of her prints:

Chris and I were filmed last weekend in our 'creative spaces'. You can view the photographs at Fed Square this weekend as part of The Living Room exhibition.
