Melbourne Art Trams 2023
Curated by Jarra Karalinar Steel
JUN 13 2023 – JUN 2024
Find your stop and step up into a rolling exhibition of Blak Futurism, identity and culture. Or step back and watch the fleet of travelling canvasses wind their way across Country and up through urban passageways.
The Melbourne Art Trams roll on with six trams once again featuring new designs by First Peoples artists. Artist Jarra Karalinar Steel (Boonwurrung/ Wemba Wemba) returns as curator too. She’s inviting six artists to respond to the new theme of Blak Futurism—a call to envision better futures and representation for Australia’s First Peoples.
