Gertrude St Projection Festival 2013

In 2013 The Gertrude Street Projection Festival (GSPF) will celebrate its sixth year of staging inner Melbourne’s most visible and accessible free large scale arts festival.

For the first time this year, we’ll be projecting our installation titled “Peeling Back The Layers” onto the brick wall cnr Gertrude St and Little Smith (installation number 34), opposite the street from Trippy Taco! We explore ways in which urban art and graffiti is built up in layers over time.

We will also be incorporating audio interactivity so scream and shout all you want to bring the installation to life!

Our installation digitally exposes the layers of art beneath the brick surface to reveal work from artists around the globe. More info can be found here:

Running from 19 to 28 July, the festival celebrates projection art and lets us see familiar spaces and buildings in new, inspired ways. It’s a collaborative, volunteer effort of artists and traders, residents and community groups all brought together by The Gertrude Association.

For 10 evenings in July and in over 30 sites, the length of Gertrude Street in Fitzroy will be illuminated by the visions of talented projections artists for the Gertrude Street Projection Festival. Buildings, laneways, footpaths and tree trunks will be lit up with site-specific, curated projections which respond to the theme Illuminate. The Festival Hub located upstairs at Gertrude’s Brown Couch boasts an incredible line-up of events, including live music, workshops, master classes, panel forums and much more. The Festival’s diverse arts program celebrates and connects our diverse community.


Jamie will also be part of the Interactive & Experimental arts panel, sharing his experiences of visual performance with others and hopefully giving a bit of insight into what it’s like coming to Melbourne and intergrating into the visual performance culture. More info can be found here:
