FEDERATION²: Reko Rennie with The Electric Canvas

See Fed Square transform into an electric canvas with the work of internationally acclaimed Indigenous artist Reko Rennie.

Following its premiere for White Night Melbourne 2016, the spectacular, kaleidoscopic light projection will flood the facades of Fed Square over four nights for The Light in Winter.

Through building-mapping and artistic projections onto Fed Square’s many geometric sandstone, zinc and glass surfaces, inter-disciplinary artist Reko Rennie provokes discussion surrounding Indigenous culture and identity in contemporary urban environments.
