Multi-arts precinct ’pixie dusted’ with largest outdoor exhibition

A sneak peak inside Abbotsford Convent’s largest outdoor, nighttime exhibition exploring our entanglements with others – both human and non-human.

Turning COVID restrictions into inspiration, Interspecies and Other Others opening tonight (26 August) at Abbotsford Convent is the multi-arts precinct’s newest outdoor, after-dark offering and the largest in its history.

Housed among the 16 acres of inner-city Melbourne Convent grounds, Interspecies features four commissions by Abdul Abdullah and David Charles Collins, Megan Cope, Atlanta Eke, and Lyndal Jones among works by Tony Albert, Dylan Martorell and many others.
