Juan Ford and Natasha Bieniek in ‘Side Project’

Michael Peck has curated a show called 'Side Project' to open 26 June at the Academy of Design in Port Melbourne. Featuring work by Juan Ford, Natasha Bieniek, Bindi Cole, Reko Rennie and more, the show delves into the importance of experimentation for practising artists. On display for a month, it's a great insight into which works influenced each artists' trajectory.
