INSERT COIN HERE: coming to Craft Victoria on Monday!

Coming soon to Craft Victoria's foyer is Insert Coin Here, a fabulous (ahem) group exhibition curated by our own Nella Themelios and Kim Brockett!

The exhibition consists of 2 vending machines featuring work by over 60 of Melbourne's best artists, designers and craft practitioners including several past exhibitors, COUNTER stockists and Craft Hatch stallholders like Nathan Gray, Dylan Martorell, Nicholas Jones (whose forthcoming collaborative exhibition with Warren Harrison Without Bias opens a few weeks' time!), Dani M, Felicity Jane Large, Emma Greenwood (and her son Leo Jinks!), Tim Fleming, Chloe Vallance, Sharon Margaret, Dawn Tan as well as several CV staff Anita Cummins, Beck Jobson, Carmel McKie and Pip Carroll.

Each artist has produced a minimum of 10 works, giving a total of over 600 little capsules of awesome, all for the low, low price of $2 each! For the full list of participants, click here.

Insert Coin Here runs from 1 - 31 March and the machines will be kicking off their journey across the Melbourne CBD right here at CVHQ this Monday 1 March at 10am, so make sure you get your $2 coins ready!
