    Published 13 September 2023
    Join us for our upcoming St Kilda’s Alright! panel discussion with artists Jon Cattapan, Maya Vice and DELSINKI and emcee Maddy MacFarlane.

    We’re closing out our St Kilda’s Alright! exhibition at the Carlisle Street Art Space with a special panel discussion called St Kilda’s Alright! then, now, always. 

    About the exhibition – St Kilda’s Alright! 

    The exhibition was curated to celebrate the endorsement of the St Kilda Live Music Precinct and it showcases a selection of key works by artists who played a significant part in advancing St Kilda’s creative culture during the 1980s. 

    The exhibition is running between 14 July to 22 September and features a total of 37 artworks. 

    About the panel – St Kilda’s Alright! then, now, always 

    We’re hosting a free panel discussion at 6 pm on Friday 22 September at the Carlisle Street Arts Space to conclude the closing of the exhibition.  

    We’ll be joined by three iconic artists - Jon Cattapan, Maya Vice and DELSINKI – to discuss the past, present and future of art and live music in St Kilda. Together they’ll reflect on what it was like as an artist in the 1980s compared to today, and what can be learnt from the 80s to ensure that St Kilda continues to be a cultural leader and a sought-after destination for artists. 

    Get to know the artists

    The panel will be emceed by PBS radio broadcaster and PhD researcher, Maddy Macfarlane.

    The panel will be officially opened by Cr Robbie Nyaguy. There’ll be an opportunity for attendees to ask the panel questions towards the end.   

    Following the panel, attendees will be able to enjoy a curated playlist as they view the St Kilda’s Alright! exhibition one last time before it closes for good.
