Last Thursday was the Melbourne launch of CURVY 7 and the first ever MUSCLE UP at Magnation on Elizabeth Street in the CBD. The weather wasn't all that fab and wonderful but many came along on the night to get their hands on copies of the books, check out artworks, have a drink and mingle.
It was nice being asked to curate the Melbourne launch yet again with the people at Magnation. This time I also had some help from another Melbourne artist Jessica Singh which was lovely.
Gorgeous piece that Deb did just for the launch
For the launch street artist Deb came in and painted a fresh new piece on the Elizabeth Streets wall up on the third floor, which gave a real Melbourne touch to the launch. On display are works by Australian artists Jessica Singh, Nicole Tattersall (me), Rebecca Murphy, Tabitha Emma Patterson, Kelly Smith, Natalie Perkins and Kirbee Lawler.

A punter having a chat... I wonder what was being said?
As part of the launch at Magnation Jessica Singh and I created window installations featuring works by ourselves, Rebecca Murphy and Tabitha Emma Patterson. They are full of butterflies and flamingos and can be seen at both the Greville Street and Elizabeth Street stores.
The early crowd
The art and window displays will be up for a little while longer, but not forever so you'd best be quick to pop on in and check it all out. Plus while your there why not grab yourself a copy of both the books too.
