The inner-north will soon light up with curated works of art at the Gertrude Street Projection Festival. Back for its 15th year, street-facing windows and walls around Gertrude Street will be illuminated with thoughtful artworks. Admire light installations and projections around public spaces, then check out events, parties, talks, screenings and more. Presented by The Centre for Projection Art, this festival will run from Thursday July 27 to Sunday August 6.
Gertrude Street Projection Festival
This dazzling winter display will feature the work of 11 of the Festival’s artists-in-residence, as well as community and collaborative projects. The program this year will take over civic spaces to share merging ideas about history, technology, experience, materials, politics and emotions through the curated selection of art.
Enjoy new works from emerging and established Australian artists, including Sarah Aiken, Tully Arnot, Chantal Bala, Lilah Benetti, Jamali Bowden and Leitu Bonnici, The ElectroPoetics (Bixiao Zhang), Alana Hunt, The Huxleys and Rose Chong, Tahlia Palmer, Juan Rodriguez Sandoval, Naina Sen, Melody Woodnutt and Henry Lai-Pyne. Look forward to projections, installations, audio-visual projects and more.
The Gertrude Street Projection Festival will kick off with an Opening Party at Collingwood Yards. Listen to a curated selection of music from E.merge Agency, with young local artists and global sounds. While you’re there, enjoy bites by Vola Foods and sip on a special wintery beverage by Long Prawn. The party is free to attend, and will take place on Thursday July 27 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.
Beyond the festival
If you can’t make it to Gertrude Street, that’s ok, because the artworks will also light up Fed Square, Bunjil Place and Collingwood Yards. The dates for GSPF Offsite 2023 will be announced in the future.
