Fiona Trigg- Talent

28 08 2009

I met up with Fiona Trigg, an assistant curator at ACMI.

Some of Fiona’s favourite places to experience art in Melbourne is the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) in Southbank.

She also likes walking around the alleyways and going down Flinders Lane, to check out smaller galleries. She mentions in the podcast that people could use their lunch breaks to explore the city a little more.

Another favourite gallery is The Nicholas Building on Swanston st.

Yellow Peril, or officially known as Vault is a favourite sculpture of Fiona’s, despite it’s bad rep. It’s outside the ACCA at the moment, but has moved around a little since its creation.

For those who don’t go to exhibitions much, maybe use your Saturday afternoon to go explore. Or Next Wave festival is worth checking out, an easy way to see lots of new work by emerging artists.

Her main advice is to go to exhibitions and galleries now. They are normally only around for a limited time. I agree, I’m always putting everything on my To Do list, but that is one sure way that they don’t get done!
