REVIEW⟶ ArtsHub review: Now or Never Art Trail
Review by Celina Lei
18th August 2023
Crowd-pleasers set the tone at Melbourne’s inaugural Now or Never festival.
The Now or Never Art Trail, one of the hallmark events at Melbourne’s new Now or Never festival, launched last night (17 August) along Dockland’s Victoria Harbour Promenade. Art and technology intertwine in seven large-scale installations curated by Experimenta, from harmonic “knots and crosses” to fog bubbles and live-data projections.
Opening night saw adults and children alike stroll through the outdoor art trail with a sense of wonder and curiosity. Beyond the surface of delivering simple fun and entertainment, and driving foot traffic to the district, many of the works invite pause and observation.
