MoreArt - Ride
Each year the City of Moreland invites artists to transform spaces alongside and round the Upfield Shared Path precinct with work created for specific spaces. And one of the best ways to discover the work is of course by bicycle!
Join us for an afternoon exploring highlights of the MoreArt Public Art Show by bike. We're thrilled to have Jane O'Neill joining us this year to host this and our other rides and she'll be introducing us to the artist at each installation we visit who will give us some background on the work and answer your questions.
Jane O'Neill is a freelance art curator and the founder of Art Aficionado Tours - a Melbourne-based team of dedicated contemporary art curators committed to the promotion of Australian and International contemporary art projects through art tours, public talks, collection management and written essays.
This MoreArt Ride will be held on Sunday November 22nd and will start from Gowrie Station. We'll be working our way south down the Upfield Shared Path past visual art and participatory installations. The theme of this year's show is Participation and many of the art works are created to invite your involvement in one way or another.
On this tour we'll be visiting Revolutionary Monuments where you are invited to bring an item that represents something you'd like to be rid of for 'execution' by a guillotine, Larissa Macfarlane's Handstands and the Golden Opportunity Shop amongst others. Our final stop will be at the Mechanic's Institute on Sydney Road, Brunswick visiting two installations, Dream Boat and Suburban Therapy.
This tour is appropriate for intermediate riders and will take place mainly on off road bike lanes (Upfield bike path) - some riding on on-road bike lanes and back streets required.
