The Paterson Project
For nearly 20 years I have lived in the Fitzroy/Collingwood area in Melbourne, 9 of those years next to the Paterson Building, an iconic multi level building on Smith Street.
I've known people who have lived there, I've been to parties there, and I had my very first solo exhibition there.
This Monday it is scheduled to be gutted, renovated and turned into apartments, like every other historical building of worth. In the mean time, an amazing event - The paterson Project took place and I was lucky enough to be allowed to wonder in and out during the week to take some behind the scenes photographs before the opening night. Around 100 artists went into the empty building and painted the walls to make money for The Royal Children's Hospital.
