High Views – Art in Windows and Small Works Small Spaces are installation based projects of site specific artworks that engage with the High Street, Northcote precinct and aim to provoke, surprise and delight the viewer. The Northern Exposure Festival is an exciting feature on the High Street, Northcote calendar of events.

NCAT has had a long standing place in Northern Exposure's history. Traditionally we host an exhibition of artworks at the Northcote Town Hall and this year is no exception. In addition, this year we hosting a collaborative art project for an installation in a High Views window in High Street. This event called About Face, will be a collaboration between NCAT Folio Preparation and our ex students. Our course has been running for over 23 years and many of our ex students are leaders in the creative industries. This is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with them and connect them with each other as well. Lets face it, we love networking!

The theme of this year's Northern Exposure Festival is Change, which fitted our idea of bringing together ex-students in an art work. The piece will be hung in the windows of one of the High St Northcote shopfronts (Yet to be announced which one). Our plan is to use coloured transparencies connected to make a screen of portraits.

Submissions are open to ex students to submit to us a fabulous photographic self portrait!... It can be as simple as using a Facebook profile pic or as complex as a full on photo shoot. 
Submitted pieces (to be printed by us) need to be:

  • A4 size
  • Self Portrait
  • Reasonable resolution, pref 150 dpi.
  • Image will be turned into a duotone on transparency film, so B&W is good - or just submit in colour & we can convert it.
  • Jpg file named with your name
  • emailed to NCATfoliopreparation@gmail.com
This is a great opportunity for ex students to add their involvement in an Art Installation to their CV/resume without all the palarva that usually goes with it! We do the work and they get their beautiful faces out there! Thanks go out to those who have already submitted portraits - They look great!
Submissions are also open to other artists wanting to participate in High Views or Small works, Small spaces. Northern Exposure opens on the evening of Friday 12th July and continues through to the 28th July - on High Street Northcote.
