Australia’s new festival of urban art reveals the first line up of artists, major installations and programming set to take over The Facility, Kensington in Melbourne for ten days this summer. From 20-29 February 2020, Can’t Do Tomorrow will transform Melbourne’s iconic underground warehouse into an outlandish Eden celebrating the best in urban art and contemporary culture.
Over 100 street artists, galleries, musicians and collectives will revolutionize the multi-level venue, from top to bottom, presenting site-specific works across every surface ranging from paintings, murals, photography, sculptures and illustrations, to projections and epic installations. The largest showcase of street and urban art in Australia, visitors will also be able to purchase original artworks presented directly from artists and galleries, as well as limited edition prints available from a custom built print store.
A selection of the biggest names in the underground urban arts scene will transform the space with awe-inspiring installations and site-specific murals. Including Redbubble’s very own former resident artists George Rose, Creature Creature, Steve Leadbeater, David Lee Pereira and residency coordinator Dominic Taranto.
Running alongside the artworks, the 10 day festival will also include an extensive program of talks delving into the inner workings of the street art scene and intricate subcultures within the graffiti writing world.
Can’t Do Tomorrow, Festival Director, Zoe Paulsen said: “Can’t Do Tomorrow is a one of a kind summer festival which both figuratively and literally, breaks through the walls of a traditional art fair. We want to create an epic experience for our visitors, and immerse them in a new way of consuming, or being consumed by art.”
A curated music lineup, live acts, DJs and artist-led workshops will run throughout the festival alongside pop bars, food and exclusive warehouse club nights. The brand new Tallows club open until 1am keeps the festival vibe going into the night, where party-goers can gather and unwind after a day full of immersive art.
