Posters of PORTogether brings Port Melbourne to life through the eyes of its own people. I was particularly impressed with Aili Lim 's #morethanaport for its combination of uniquely Port snapshots. Lims poster generates the feeling that the spirit of place cannot be captured in a single image, but rather that it exists in the liminal space between images where their commonalities can be found.
I have seen the posters in shop windows up and down Bay Street Liked the connection and collection of local photos/art really good.
Its nice to see familiar photos display in container about Port Melbourne . My favorite is Storytime. Well done to all the artists. It’s a really beautiful way to showcase Port Melbourne
The public display of works in the Posters of PORTogether exhibition has officially closed but the artworks will continue to be available to view online.
The innovative public display held on Bay Street and Station Pier across January and early February allowed a wide range of members of the community to view the works. Curious onlookers had the opportunity to poke their heads inside a shipping container while walking past, a gaggle of cyclists dropped by adding a cultural break to their journey through Port Melbourne, overseas visitors checked out the display while their cruise ships were stationed at the pier and some travelled across the city when word of the exhibition spread.
The Bay Street exhibition allowed locals to combine community art with their weekly chores and coffee breaks.
Plans are afoot to involve the community in a third phase of the community arts project.
