Front Beach, Back Beach Launches at Beleura House & Garden
Front Beach, Back Beach officially launches on 10 May, 2022.
Last night, we officially launched Front Beach, Back Beach at Beleura House & Garden on Bunurong/Boon Wurrung Land. Lionel Lauch from Living Culture welcomed guests with a Smoking Ceremony, and shared local stories of ritual and connection to Country. It was wonderful for artists, curators, partners, collaborators and supporters to gather and celebrate the achievements made so far as we look to the project's debut in November.
Front Beach, Back Beach (FBBB) is an ambitious public art project that will take place in November 2022, bringing together the diverse communities, cultures and landscapes of the Mornington Peninsula. Eighteen leading Australian artists have been commissioned to make new work in response to the extraordinary sites, histories and communities of this spectacular region south of Melbourne. Co-conceived by Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery and Deakin University’s Public Art Commission, FBBB will be a unique road trip for art lovers and local communities taking place across fifteen sites from Coolart Wetlands to Point Nepean.
The fifteen site-specific events will unfold across the Peninsula in November 2022 and will be documented for an exhibition at the MPRG over summer.
