Public Art Exhibition

Address: the southern wall of the Museum building at 22 Cohen Pl, Melbourne VIC 3000

The City is full of unnoticed marginal spaces. What do these, often small, forgotten and overlooked places offer our imaginative experience of urban life? The Museum of Chinese Australian History has transformed its southern wall and easement into the Slot Gallery to explore this question in the context of an ever-changing Melbourne.

"Together" is a public artwork created by Year 11 student Ellie Monk from Wyndham Central Secondary College as part of a creative workshop facilitated by artist, designer, and educator Grace Leone, RMIT University.

Inspired by the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, Together celebrates family re-union when the full moon appears largest in the sky. Connection and togetherness are aesthetically represented using the tans (flat polygons) from the Tangram, a Chinese dissection puzzle.
