Renowned artist Rone is currently dazzling Melbourne audiences at Flinders Street Station. Located on the mysterious third floor, the exhibition will transport you back in time with evocative images and nostalgic set pieces. This hugely popular exhibition, Time, is currently sold-out this month, and if you’re looking for something to scratch that artistic itch, you’re in luck. There’s a couple of pop-up installations around Melbourne that will allow you to see artwork by Rone for free.
Pop-up installations by Rone
Tableau of Without Darkness There is No Light
This free installation is from the 2021 exhibition, Rone in Geelong. Throughout Rone’s work, you’ll find a constant theme of works being visible for a only fleeting period of time. The exhibition in Geelong was the first comprehensive survey of his career to date, charting his earlier works and featuring photographs of his major installations. It offered audiences a chance to discover what once was. And now, in front of Arts Centre Melbourne, you can do the same.
See it from now until February 26.
📍Forecourt of Arts Centre Melbourne
The Newsagency and Mixed Business Store
Part exhibition, part retail space, this installation offers a peek into what you can expect from Time. Located just a few doors away from the exhibition, an empty storefront is reimagined into what it might have been. The Newsagency is complete with hand-painted signs, strewn papers and the news of the day. Rone’s signature mural work hauntingly looks on.
Meanwhile, the adjoining Mixed Business Store allows visitors to discover a curated selection of work from Melbourne’s underground creative network. The space celebrates the city’s artistic community, with a focus on contemporary art, product, makers and new merchandise.
This pop-up is open from now until April 23. It’s open from 10am to 6pm on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday, and from 10am to 9pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
📍Shop 30, Flinders Street, directly opposite Degraves Street.
