Common Collective's Three-Day Arts Project in Wyndham Unveils Home as Public Art Installation

Wyndham City is thrilled to announce the unveiling of [At Home] Wyndham, a dynamic three-day collaborative art project conceived by Common Collective. This innovative initiative transforms an existing freestanding residence in Wyndham into a large-scale public art installation, featuring exhibitions, community activations, events, screenings, and a comprehensive program of talks exploring the concept of home.

Scheduled to take place from Friday, December 1, to Sunday, December 3, the [At Home] Wyndham project represents the inaugural phase of an ongoing exploration into the idea of home through site-specific architectural interventions implemented in homes worldwide. It delves into the utilization of domestic space and its distinctive role in the Australian psyche.

Marcel Mahfoud, the Creative City portfolio holder for Wyndham City, expressed, “[At Home] Wyndham delves into various perspectives and ideas surrounding the theme of home, challenging and encouraging the sharing of stories and experiences related to home.”

“This groundbreaking project, a first for Wyndham, metamorphoses a house into a collaborative arts endeavor.”

Featuring the participation of over 12 local artists and creatives alongside invited collaborators, each artist will individually and collectively respond to the concepts of home and the built environment through parties, photography, film, talks, and research.

[At Home] Wyndham is brought to life by Common Collective, with support from Wyndham City, Creative Australia, Creative Victoria, and the Alastair Swayn Foundation, and produced in partnership with Scoundrel Projects.

Opening Times:
– Friday, 1 Dec: 10 am – 9:30 pm
– Saturday, 2 Dec: 11 am – 9:30 pm
– Sunday, 3 Dec: 11 am – 6 pm
