Great Heights

A 2010 Next Wave Festival Keynote Project

Great Heights is a series of immersive events across various Melbourne rooftops. Great Heights elevates artists and audiences high above the city to explore the possibilities of rooftop spaces: locations which are often hidden from the public eye and inaccessible to the passerby, but which might reveal exhilarating new perspectives and re-cast our surroundings in an extraordinary new light.

Art Exhibition previously on at 2010 Next Wave Festival in Melbourne precinct, Victoria, Australia.
From Wednesday 19 May 2010 to Friday 28 May 2010

The Great Heights artists will open up the city in new ways, providing a unique opportunity to creatively re-imagine the ground-level landscape we so often take for granted.

From quiet moments of reflection to breathtaking kinetic and light-based interventions, the Great Heights events will explore notions of vertigo, trespass, escape, transcendence, sanctuary, exposure and confrontation. Wander through these altered environments and rethink the space and time you inhabit.
