BUS Projects is pleased to present Critical Mobility, a nomadic public art project exploring the relations between art and globalised public space. Utilising a truck fitted-out as a gallery and performance space, the project features new work by Ros Bandt, Michael Fowler, Dylan Martorell and SIBLING, as well as a ‘pop-up’ performance series entitled Transits curated by BUS Projects’ Gallery Manager Jared Davis.
The Critical Mobility truck will appear at a range of CBD locations throughout the State of Design Festival as well as at Footscray Train Station in partnership with Big West. Critical Mobility will conclude with a public forum on the subject of art and public space at the office of the Big West Festival in Footscray at 2pm, 6 August. This project has been curated by Ryan Johnston, Nella Themelios and Jared Davis and forms part of the State of Design Festival 2011. Critical Mobility at Footscray is a part of the Big West Little Bites program.
