Immerse 2017


Immerse is an exhibition program that defies the traditional confines of an art gallery.
It dares you to find and experience art in a whole new way.

Covering over 100km2, artists will exhibit in 30 venues for 30 days. It’s a conversation with an audience of thousands.

Immerse is a chance for you to engage with the world through your lens, and for the world to engage with your work through theirs.

EOI is now closed

In 2016 photographers, illustrators, sculptors, installation artists and painters wowed us with their talent and creative voice. This year, we called for artists with bold ambition, across all mediums to show us our commonalities and our differences, our fears and inspirations. Art can bring us together, and that is transcendent.

Immerse is an exhibition that is bold and ambitious in scale, and we want work to reflect and enhance that ambition.

Artists and art groups from across Melbourne and from within Knox will show their work from 11 November through to 11 December 2017.

All applicants who are successful in their EOI application will be notified by email in July 2017 and if selected you will have four months to complete your work ready to show the public. During this time your assigned curator will meet with you to assist you and prepare you for a month of exhibition!

What previous Immerse artists have to say

"Immerse has opened a whole new direction for my practice. Learning how to translate work into a much larger scale and developing a new visual language and perception. Plus installing the work was really incredible!!"
- Kylie Watson

"My curator was great at helping choose the works to hang, placement of the works for maximised coverage, bought together the content of the show, and logistics of install."
- Kelly Sullivan

"It was great being involved for my personal development and it is a fantastic initiative."
- Rachel Phillips

"I very much appreciate the opportunity to be involved in Immerse. The scope of venues and breadth of art was impressive. Trust this becomes a very successful annual event on the arts calendar for Knox and beyond!"
- Heather Walters
