Gertrude Street Projection Festival

The Street Projection Exhibition held in Fitzroy in July attracts a large number of Melbourne tourists and residents here every year. This year is the tenth year.

In the past 10 years, it has excavated a large number of outstanding artistic geniuses. They have launched various ideas and projected lights on the buildings to give this street alive and vitality.

With the artist's ingenuity, the walls of each building tell different stories and become an alternative dream factory of light and shadow.

Starting from this Friday, more than 30 old buildings, bars and restaurants, and even withered old trees on Gertrude Street have all become mobile screens, covered by creative or artistic projections; the entire street changes instantly It became an open-air art gallery...

In the long winter nights in Melbourne, where the days are short and the nights are long, linger on the streets of Gertrude and look up and feel the flow of art.
