Nite Art 2013 is a new art event and digital platform for Melbourne. For the first time on one night, Melburnians can experience simultaneous gallery openings and art walks across 21 well-known, cutting edge and experimental gallery and artist run spaces in the CBD and North Melbourne.

Scandinavian Freestyle was commissioned for the Hero Apartments in association with Fiona Abicare. Scandinavian Freestyle develops a language of materiality in response to the formal qualities and associated styles present within the foyer's interior. An emphasis on the ‘complete interior’ describes the process and project’s ambitions: to develop relations between art, décor, interior architecture and utility objects and present artistic material, configured in relationship to surrounding context and history.

Nite art is running on Wednesday July 24th from 6pm.
Scandinavian Freestyle will be open to the public between 6-10 pm. 118 Russell St, Melbourne
