Little Malop Street Redevelopment

Extraordinary Artists

Little Malop Street Redevelopment First Nations Featured Artists

One of the most exciting design elements of Geelong Arts Centre Little Malop Street Redevelopment is the presentation of specially commissioned artworks within the building's spaces by four extraordinary First Nations artists.

In a collection of captivating videos, Wadawurrung artist Kait James and First Nations artists Gerard Black, Tarryn Love and Mick Ryan take us into their creative workspaces to reveal the stories behind their unique artworks which form part of the fabric of the new Geelong Arts Centre.

In this video collection, viewers will hear directly from the artists and artist mentor Kiri Tawhai as they share personal stories about their connection to Country, their inspiration, their influences, as well as the fabrication journey to present these works.

An integral part of the Geelong Arts Centre Little Malop Street Redevelopment has been building a meaningful connection to Country and the wider Geelong community through its design, and ARM Architects have worked closely with the artists to present their works in new and fascinating ways.

These artists' works were selected through an Expression of Interest process promoted by Geelong Arts Centre in 2021.
