Set to celebrate some of Melbourne’s most loved music icons, Collingwood’s newest warehouse and gallery, Besser Space, is set to host three free music-related exhibitions in July.
In week one, premier live music venue, The Corner Hotel will shine, as it celebrates its last 20 years. There’ll be a gallery of some of the venues favourite gig shots, from local live music photography legends including Ian Laidlaw, Carbie Warbie and Mary Boukouvalas on show, as well as poster artwork and adverts from years gone by. There’ll also be the announcement of the shortlisted artists for their first newly appointed annual award, the Corner Award.
The second week will see much loved indie label Bedroom Suck and their artists celebrated, with an exhibition featuring works from the musicians behind Bedroom Suck bands including Deaf Wish, Totally Mild, Twerps, Lower Plenty and more.
In the last week, Besser Space will play host to an exhibition from prominent live music photographer, Zo Damage, entitled EVE. The works focus on women in rock’n’roll and like Zo’s previous works, promise to be emotionally captivating and raw.
The exhibitions will run at Besser Space, 15-25 Keele Street, Collingwood from Friday July 1 until Thursday July 21. Entry to all exhibitions is free.
