West Space is proud to present the West Wing, an off-site project space within Melbourne Central, a multiplex within Melbourne’s CBD. This is a Melbourne Central and West Space partnership, and we are excited about the difference possibilities that will arise through presenting an artistic program in this unique space, as well as the ability to offer artists free space in the city.
To find the West Wing: We invite you to go and visit the West Wing, which is located on the second level of Melbourne Central, near Freedom Furniture and directly underneath Hoyts Cinema. Opening hours: Opening hours vary depending on the project – please see below for specific project details. However, as the space is a shopfront, it is always possible to see in at any time.

Camilla Hannan is a sound artist working exclusively with field recordings. She processes these recordings into abstract representations of place and experience. Her interest lies in site-specific multi speaker installation that reconceptualises the sonic landscape she finds herself working in. www.camillahannan.com
tarab/eamon sprod explores re-contextualised field recordings and tactile gestures formed into dynamic, psycho-geographical compositions inspired by discarded things, found things, junk, dirt, the ground, rocks, dust, wind, walking aimlessly, scratchy things, decay, and most if not all the things he sees and hears. tarab's work has become increasingly site specific. More than simply documenting a given site, tarab is interested in teasing out half narratives, visceral sensation and heightened awareness of a location. www.23five.org/tarab.
