Robert Walton was artist in residence with us from April – June 2018. Based in Melbourne, his works spans theatre, installation, writing and media art.
During his time with us, Robert continued to develop a new participative public artwork with AR and performance called ‘The Child of Now’ with Art Centre Melbourne for City of Melbourne. After concluding his 6-week residency with a moving talk and workshop, Robert is back in Melbourne and taking the project to the next level.
Check out Robert’s interview where he explains more about ‘The Child of Now’ and touches on the intentions of the piece.
This residency was developed with the support of Blast Theory and pvi collective and through funding from the Australian government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
