Northern Exposure (NE12) is a street based arts project presented by the Northcote Business Association. Local businesses and artists join forces on High Street Northcote leaving a playful trail of discovery for the attentive observer.
In this its eighth year and still going strong, elements include:
1. High Views: site specific art installed in shop windows, including sculptural and photographic works, paintings and illustrations.
2. High Events: art related workshops, tours and events hosted on the evening of the launch and throughout the two week duration of the exhibition.
3. Small Works, Small Spaces: of either permanent or ephemeral artworks installed along the street in odd spots and out of the way places, including paste ups, miniature dioramas, and stencils.
Their aim is to create a more inclusive exhibition that brings art out onto the street and into the unexpected. Their hope is to illustrate and illuminate the suburb with art for this two-week period. There are over eighty artists involved and over fifty local businesses participating. Visitors can explore art hidden in nooks and crannies, window installations and art events that will surprise, provoke and delight.
Exciting prizes will be awarded for the best art works in each category, by an esteemed panel of judges including Bill Henson.
Our sponsors include PBS and The Leader Newspaper.
Launch Night is Friday 15th June and displayed until Sunday 1st July.
WHEN: June 15 – July 1
