Contour 556: Interventions in the Landscape
Canberra Public Art Festival
Lake Burley Griffin,
Central Basin to Kingston Arts Precinct
21 October - 13 November
Taking place around the major cultural institutions, the National Library of Australia, the National Gallery of Australia, the high court of Australia and the Kingston Arts Precinct, Contour 556 is a large scale public realm intervention, bringing together the works of 50 local, national and international artists across the Canberra landscape, in response to the layers of Canberra's history.
Contour 556 will interrogate the relationships between artworks and space; artists and the public; and the ways in which art, performance and play can influence how the public perceive and remember space.
