Melbourne has lots of ARIs (Artist Run Initiatives) which usually show different and more unusual work than commercial galleries, and a new one has popped up locally in Footscray. My artist friend Michelle and I went to the Bruce opening night last night.

We saw some interesting installations using lights, cane, a birdcage, timber and paper ‘fungus’ by Leon van de Graaf.

Welcome to the neighbourhood, Bruce! More places to show art can only be a good thing…
