PUBLIC Albany | FORM
"It’s called the Great Southern for a reason, and if you’ve ever been to Albany, you’ll know why.
This is where a landscape leads by example, showing character, resilience, toughness and tenderness. It’s a grown-up kind of place. It feels confident, real. It has heart.
So, how will PUBLIC’s urban artists from Europe, Tunisia, India, Russia, and the States respond to the magic of the Great Southern? Find out when they hit Albany’s town centre in mid-April as part of PUBLIC to mix it up with the local talent, and give some of York Street’s buildings a makeover.
From each artist, a personal response to the individual wall, its dimensions and setting; and from each artist also a personal response to the ambience and energy of Albany, its people and surroundings, its harbour, and by default the ocean, the outlying islands, the inimitable, breathe-it-deep freshness and wildness that has always been a part of this region." - FORM
