Barry McGee, concept drawing for Project 14.

Project 14 : Barry McGee


Project Overview
For Project 14, Barry McGee transformed the old Metropolitan Meat Market in Melbourne into a cacophony of chequerboard shapes, urban characters and cast-offs, booming and colliding with sound and energy. A mural was painted over the National Gallery of Victoria’s glass waterwall and acted as an alternative billboard for the event. Together the works evoked the sensory overload of contemporary consumer culture and paid homage to the outcasts of a disposable world.
