Extraordinary Art In Ordinary Places

Across 18 public artworks and four distinct geographical areas (CBD, Docklands, North Melbourne & Chapel St) Melbourne Fringe has commissioned 24 contemporary artists to create extraordinary art in ordinary places. Vivifying the spaces, structures and places that we take for granted each and every day, Uncommon Places has been curated to help you see and experience your city in a new light.

Processional by design, each location offers the audience a number of artworks that are distinctly unique to that space and place.  An audio walking tour might be complemented by a piece of street art that then points to a shop window, which you’ll find hiding around a corner. Experience one or explore them all, Uncommon Places is as much about the journey as it is about the art. 

Explore the art in each area by following the links below.
