Testing Grounds

We’re taking over.

Testing Grounds is handing over the keys to Next Wave for a last hurrah, and
we’re taking over all of its infrastructures. This is Testing Grounds reimagined, before the iconic site is absorbed by precinct development.

Responding to the gradual collapse of structures and environments, we have put together a series of interventions, workshops, and public forums that will challenge the physical and conceptual monument — the Melbourne Art Precinct. It’s a Southbank operation, a collective artistic act to interfere with the precinct, its stakeholders, routines, and economies. A program of exhibitions, performances and interventions to test the limits.
