The Metro Tunnel commissions Maree Clarke for line-wide artwork
Posted: 20 Jan 2020
The line-wide artwork will feature across all five new underground stations – Arden, Parkville, State Library, Town Hall and Anzac.
Maree is a Yorta Yorta / Wamba Wamba / Mutti Mutti / Boonwurrung woman who grew up in Mildura and now lives in Melbourne. Her work connects the past with the present – telling stories of Aboriginal people, their connections to Country and cultural practices that extend back more than 60,000 years.
While Maree’s design will feature across the new Metro Tunnel line, other permanent artworks will be installed in the five new stations.
Artists have been shortlisted for Arden, State Library, Parkville and Anzac station artwork commissions. These artists will commence concept development shortly, with the final station artists announced in mid-late 2020.
The search for the Town Hall Station artist closed at 5pm Monday 17 February.
