Here is a rare opportunity to get behind the grungy exterior of a Melbourne cultural venue usually closed to the general public.
This is a limited and exclusive chance to meet the artist and designers over a delicious brunch supplied by Collingwood’s busiest deli, Alimentari and drinks by the Spanish Acquisition in a magical setting that combines art, design, music, food and good conversation.
Where does art end and design begin? How do designers collaborate with musicians?
These are some of the questions that will pop up as you browse the rooms by jeweller and taxidermist Julia deVille’s; Brustman+Boyde’s Backstage Boudoir multi-media artists Will & Garrett Huxley, jeweller Cass Partington, artist and sculptor Emily Floyd, visual artist Patricia Piccinini, musician and artist Mick Turner (Dirty Three), Bruce Milne and Adele Daniele (The Tote), and Spacecraft Studio print designers Stewart Russell and Clara Gladstone who, amongst others, have stripped the music-soaked walls to their bones and re-imagined ten rock’n’roll fantasy rooms to inspire future sound.
Over the past 12 months owner Helen Marcou has invited designers, artists, and musicians to work together to create installations in the music rooms of Melbourne musicians den: Bakehouse Studios. The result is sensory overload, each room a unique statement of the artist’s response to the personality of each space and a testament to the curatorial eye of Helen Marcou.
