Contributors presenting new works include Patricia Piccinini, Emily Floyd, Veronica Kent and Dirty Three guitarist and painter Mick Turner. In a world first, visual artists have been let loose in some of the smallest and grungiest rehearsal rooms to create installations especially for musicians in this working studio.

You’ll see installations made of Icing from the darlings of NGV’s Melbourne Now, the Hotham Street Ladies, Taxidermy from vegan artist Julia deVille, a metal room by jeweller Cass Partington, Early Punk images from photographer Peter Milne, a bespoke ”backstage’ by design duo Brustman + Boyd and a homage to pulp fiction by screen printer Stewart Russell.

The Light in Winter at Fed Square

The Light in Winter at Fed Square
People power lights up Melbourne in the midst of winter
The Light in Winter
Directed by Robyn Archer 1 - 30 June Federation Square FREE
This June Fed Square’s annual program of art, sculpture and events, The Light in Winter, will feature a new Australian work by renowned light artist Bruce Ramus. A huge steel and light structure representing life itself, the Helix Tree will be activated each night at dusk, by the voices of Melbourne, right in the centre of Fed Square.
Helix Tree will be equipped with advanced sound and light technology that responds to the voices of those who sing to its network of spirals and curves. A succession of community choirs will assemble at its base each night during the month of June and ’sing up’ the Helix Tree.

This year the power of the voice and the helix as the symbol of life resonate through the program. Taking their lead from the presence of the helix will be forums on science and democracy, offerings from Melbourne’s Indigenous and multicultural communities, a new project exploring the common ways of diverse groups and the special Solstice Celebrations from Thursday 20 June - Saturday 22 June.
Exploring these ideas of personal and collective power, Melbourne singer and composer, Lou Bennett of the Black Arm Band will work closely with a range of community groups to create an anthem for the Helix Tree, which will be sung by choirs to light up the Helix Tree throughout the month.
