This May Be the Last Time - Screening this Saturday

Town Hall Gallery has your Saturday arts events covered with a free film screening of This May Be the Last Time at 1pm Saturday 10 October.  The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2014 and is being shown in conjunction with our current exhibition, Eye Score: the Audible Image.

If film isn't your thing, there is also a free artist talk with Jesse Dayan at 2pm.  Jesse has been a semifinalist in the Doug Moran Prize, a finalist in the National Works on Paper Prize and was shortlisted for the Brett Whiteley Travelling Scholarship. A recent graduate from Victorian College of the Arts, Jesse has exhibited in Melbourne, London, Adelaide, Coffs Harbour and Bendigo.

Then to round your day off, join us for the launch of The Power Street Project at the Community Project Wall.  Power Street Project is an exploration of the relationship between discarded objects and place-making. On weekdays, Lauren Castillo walks from her home on Riversdale road in Hawthorn, straight up Power St (that turns into Denmark St), to her workplace at QArt Gallery on High St in Kew. Castillo collects discarded objects which she has called ‘groundfinds’ on her daily journey and repurposes them into jewelry and other wearable items. Power Street Project is a participatory exhibition as Castillo encourages you, the viewer, to notice what is discarded around you and how you can re-purpose ‘junk’ into something wearable or useful.  A smoothie bike will be onsite to quench your thirst, though you will need to cycle away to get your treat!

For more information about these events please contact the gallery on 03 9278 4626 or townhallgallery@boroondara.vic.gov.au
