Blindside Gallery, housed as it is in the imposing Nicholas Building, is always such a pleasure to visit. And on Thursday the wind–swept corridors of this Modern enclave hosts a much–anticipated event. Shae Rooke and Lizzy Sampson, along with Santina Amato have studiously been hankering down to present the fruits of the Summer Studio initiative. They‘ve previously commandeered the space with the aim of blurring “the lines between the creation, installation and exhibition process” and the public are finally invited to view the results in person. It is worth noting that they will also sport their collective stripes in these artistic endeavours or outcomes too. The Grand Opening is from 6pm on January 31st with an Artist Talk on Saturday, February 7th, from 2.30pm at Blindside on Level 7 off the corner of Swanston and Flinders Lane.
