Lightbox Laneway

Here at the City of Vincent, we are incredibly passionate about public art and acknowledge the importance it holds within the community. Not only does it bring artists and a community together, it celebrates, recognises and promotes our rich cultural and social diversity through artistic expression.

If you head for a stroll down the laneway between St Michael’s Restaurant and Orno Interiors (near 483 Beautfort Street, Highgate), you’ll come across eight lightbox cabinets. We provide the opportunity for an artist to utilise these lightboxes to exhibit their works in for three months.

The aim of our Lightbox Laneway Gallery is to create a public exhibition space to showcase local artists and their talent, get artistic conversation flowing on the streets and help create an artistic atmosphere within our creative community. It helps provide opportunities for artists or a group of artists to showcase their concepts, creativity and artistic intentions in the public realm, or emerging curators to celebrate and feature young artists of their choice.

So if you’re a local artist, part of a group of artists or a curator, we encourage you to submit a Lightbox Laneway Gallery exhibition proposal. Successful applicants will receive a budget of $1,000 to go toward covering various costs and fees.

As an applicant, you’ll need to be able to envision, write about and install your exhibition, and apply with a complete concept supported by a visual mock up with examples of past works. Preference will be given to artists who are residents of the City of Vincent – it’s only fair after all!

Peep by Kimberley Pace I Exhibiting January - March 2018 I City of Vincent resident

The body and relationships between subject and object are reconstructed and re-imagined through photographic images. These images derail both the informal and formal constructs of the male body by exploring the marginal, penetrable and transformative softness of male and masculine corporeality. Photography is used as a tool to document sites of the body and challenge how we consume the body through image.

Peep flips back and forth between dispelling and exploiting the hard, impenetrable and fixed imaginary male body image.
