Curators David Cross and Cameron Bishop, together with a stellar group of contemporary artists, lead SIX MOMENTS IN KINGSTON, a dynamic series of six public artworks set in sites around Kingston.
Each artwork responds to an infamous local story, including the mysterious disappearance of aviator Fred Valentich in 1978, following his sighting of a UFO; a celebration of globally successful Parkdale rocker Rick Springfield's worldwide hit 'Jessie's Girl'; Phil Carman's infamous headbutting incident at Moorabbin Oval, and the story of Julie Cooper, Moorabbin's first female councillor and Mayor. And much more!
Audiences board a public art bus to tour secret locations where each story occurred, enjoying commentaries voiced by legendary Australian actors, Michael Caton (The Castle) and Kate Fitzpatrick. Tour dates- Saturday 18 & 25, and Sunday 19 & 26 May.
Six Moments in Kingston is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
