Event: Just Sing What You Feel

Just in time for summer school holidays, the National Gallery of Victoria, in collaboration with Melbourne artist Jon Campbell, will open just sing what you feel, a contemporary art project created for children and families.

Drawing inspiration from everyday life, language and rock ‘n’ roll, Campbell will create an interactive space that celebrates summer in Melbourne.

Campbell takes motifs from Australian culture and transforms them into a colourful display of words and illustrations encouraging audiences to look more closely at the world around them, finding meaning and beauty in the everyday.

Andrew Clark, NGV Deputy Director said: “This project signals an exciting new direction for the NGV as the first of a new program of innovative exhibitions that will encourage children and families to discover and engage with contemporary art and artists."

just sing what you feel is a three-part installation of music and visual art. Children and families are invited to create their own DIY backyard experience using Campbell’s colourful drawings of everyday outdoor items including deck chairs, BBQs or plants.

just sing what you feel will be on display at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, 8 December 2012 to 17 February 2013. Open daily 10am–5pm. Entry is FREE.
