New Babylon is a project that challenges the way we interact with, and move through our urban environments. Culminating in performance, installation and sound works being located throughout the Melbourne CBD, these works will reinvigorate public spaces by interrupting their current uses, and by engaging with problematic or ignored locations.
Showcasing fresh work by seven innovative young artists, the project will ask 'What is the role of the artist in imagining the future of the city of Melbourne?', 'How can we reshape and re-imagine public space?' and most importantly 'How can we meaningfully reclaim the city space as our own?'
New Babylon has been developed through the Next Wave 2011 Kick Start program.
