Art Walks

These guided art walks offer a unique way of experiencing the Arts. The itineraries are diverse from visiting artist run galleries, back yard studios, public art, workshops and creative spaces to curated walks in site-specific locations. Artists are invited to talk or respond through their practice at each site. Each art walk is one to two hours in duration and offers an opportunity for creative discussion with like-minded individuals.

Welcome to the Salon

  • Corner of Paisley Street and Nicholson Streets Footscray, VIC, 3011 Australia (map)

Big West Festival and Wynter Projects presents WELCOME TO THE SALON inviting three contemporary performance artists to explore the role of woman in the site-specific location of three functioning hair salons in Footscray. The salons are Medra Genet Boutique, Ngoc Lan Hairdressing and Beauty Salon. The three artists Riza Manalo, Janette Hoe and Hannah Bronte explore the theme of identity through a hair salon; the hair styles, the process of cutting, the conversations between women, the material of hair and the milieu of a salon. The two guided walks will guide the audience to each hair salon to view each 15 minute performance.
