Art Loop video installation to make shoppers stop and look at Melbourne Central.

How many of the 51 million commuters and shoppers who pass through Melbourne Central each year will pause just long enough to check out some video art?

That’s the question implicitly posed by Art Loop, a new, permanent installation of 15 video screens and five projection “portals” running the length of the shopping centre’s lower-ground level laneway.

Curated by MARS Gallery director Andy Dinan​, Art Loop’s inaugural exhibition features work by more than 30 Australian video artists, including Hannah Raisin’s SOAK II, 2015.

Dinan says she has chosen a “diverse range of cutting-edge video works that are designed to intrigue and inspire”.

Part of a $5 million redesign by Melbourne architects Kennedy Nolan, the dedicated video space is billed as Australia’s largest exhibition of video art outside of a museum.
