Council exhibition is one out of the box

14 Sep 2017

Children have created their own amazing life-size portraits on a series of boxes in the new exhibition The Box Set: A collaborative exhibition by the Cities of Whitehorse, Maroondah and Manningham.

Whitehorse Councillor Blair Barker said the first gallery to host the exhibition would be at the Box Hill Community Arts Centre, with the display running there from 26 September-8 October.

“The portraits have been segmented into three sections (head, body and legs) and installed onto packing boxes donated by Storage King in Box Hill. Visitors to the exhibition are invited to move and interchange the boxes in the gallery, mixing and matching portraits to create new identities and celebrate the diversity in each community,” Cr Barker said.

“It is always a great experience to collaborate with nearby councils in projects such as this, as participants and council staff involved learn an enormous amount from each other and share ideas when they work so closely together.”

Box Hill Community Arts Centre in Box Hill, Wyreena Community Arts Centre in Croydon and Manningham Arts Studio in Doncaster engaged children from across their municipalities to create the life-size self portraits.
