Shift by bomb collective

Thursday 1 May 2014, 7:00am - Sunday 11 May 2014, 7:00pm
Library forecourt
328 Swanston Street, Melbourne

Come and see urban archaeology in action as artists from bomb collective excavate a layer of everyday grime and city life from a strip of the iconic Library steps.

This live public artwork will run for ten days as part of the Next Wave Festival, challenging the way we see public architecture, space and identity.

Shift has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and supported by the Government of South Australia through Arts SA and The Seed Fund.
