Docklands has just experienced “Rising”, a student public art exhibition which returned to Victoria Harbour for a fourth year last month.

The Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) students again challenged Docklanders’ perception of their precinct with some edgy works, including these guys (above) who spent May bobbing around in the harbour.

Rising: the Victoria Harbour Young Artist Initiative was an exhibition of public realm art installations from artists studying at the VCA’s sculpture and spatial practice.

It offers artists at the start of their careers, an opportunity to experience the challenges and rewards of developing and exhibiting major works for public spaces.

Exhibiting artists
