Join Cameron Bishop and David Cross from Public Art Commission for the digital launch of Treatment III, a public art project that celebrates the histories, technologies and communities of Melbourne’s West.
This online event will feature key artists and introductions to five major commissioned projects in the Treatment III program, including Robert Andrew, Zanny Begg, Eugenia Lim, James Nguyen and Linda Tegg. Alongside artist & researcher Fiona Hillary, and Paul Bellasone from Melbourne Water they will contextualise the third iteration of this ambitious public art project, sharing insights into their works and perspectives on Treatment's and our waste water infrastructure’s ongoing significance in the contexts of both cultural heritage and public health.
In addition to these conversations, attendees will experience a preview of the public artworks, an overview of the program and information on how to best navigate your way as the projects unfold from late March at Scienceworks and Spotswood, down the pipeline through Brooklyn, to culminate in late April with an event celebrating the lifecycle of the Western Treatment Plant. Please register to attend; a link will be sent via email.
