Immerse: 30 Exhibitions, 30 Days, 30 Venues in Knox

INNOVATE. SURPRISE. INSPIRE.

Immerse

Immerse, one of the largest and innovative exhibition programs in Australia will be surprising and inspiring audiences again in November.

Developed by Knox City Council in collaboration with over 40 artists, exhibiting in 30 every day spaces over 30 days Immerse gives people the opportunity to experience artwork in unexpected places, while also supporting local artists.

From street art to stencils, textiles to ceramics, sculpture to photography, glass to installation, Immerse represents an array of artistic styles and mediums.

The Immerse exhibition program is open from 12 November to 12 December 2016.

A catalogue will accompany the exhibition program and will be distributed around Melbourne and at the Immerse exhibition venues.

The curators are currently assisting the artist to develop an exhibition concept and supervise the overall development and production of the work, ensuring it will be ready to be installed by the first week of November.
