250 Spencer Street, Melbourne VIC, Australia


As part of their ongoing effort to bring art and culture to the new precinct, developer Far East Consortium Australia have partnered with us, Juddy Roller, and some of your favourite local legends to facilitate the transformation of West Side Place arcade in the CBD – creating an immersive public art gallery that is set to bring a new wave of visitors back to the city centre in a COVID safe, socially distanced way.

The series of installations are currently inhabiting spaces destined for future shops, cafes and restaurants which could not come at a better time as both retail and the arts have both had major setbacks this year as a consequence of the pandemic. Juddy Rollers Director Shaun Hossack, says “By filling these retail spaces with the best of Australian art we hope to breathe new life into Melbourne’s CBD and give people a reason to come back to our vibrant city.”

Dubbed Australia’s first-ever ‘artcade’ West Side Place welcomes intallations by some of the country’s top contemporary artists, with Reko Rennie, Rone, Adnate, Lisa King, George Rose, John Aslanidis, Caleb Walmlsey (aka Mayonaize), and Meggs all contributing to the project with their own signature style, it was all systems go with a 30 day installation deadline.
