Inter Location Project Australian Launch at Rollin' Contact Exhibition Melbourne Bikefest 2010

Inter Location Project                     
A showcase thinking through cycling + communities                                                                
Part of Rollin’ Contact
Thursday 25th November- Sunday 28th November 2010                           
11:00 AM – 10:00PM 
The Inter Location Project ( ILP ) is an independent organisation formed to build a DIY arts bridge between the two cities of Jogjakarta, Indonesia and Melbourne, Australia. 
Ten works featured in Rollin’ Contact have been especially produced by ILP Artists. Melbourne ILP Artists include: Snotrag, Tom Civil, Georg and Claire Alexander.                     ILP Artists from Yogyakarta are:  Bayu Widodo, El Kampretto, Love Hate Love and Anton Subiyanto.
ILP formed during 2010 after several Melbourne Artists travelled to Yogyakarta throughout the year. The open welcome, cultural kinship and friendship shared was overwhelming. The Melbournians’ were immediately adopted as a part of the community by their Indonesian counterparts and immersed in a vibrantly expressive and creative environment. This culminated in the first ILP exhibition ‘AYO! Mix FUN” at Bayu Widodo’s Survive! Garage Art Space in July.
ILP aims to express and maintain varied forms of artistic and cultural dialogue, creative commonalities and friendship between the two cities. In an attempt to dissolve arbitrary International borders by extending and deepening creative ties. ILP’s mission is to echo the experience to their Indonesian friends by offering them the opportunity to travel here and be taken in as a part of Melbourne’s creative communities.
ILP has recently also taken on the additional mission of raising much needed funds for helping displaced people in their sister city in the wake of the Mt. Merapi volcano disaster. Since the devastating eruptions, only 40kms from Yogyakarta, ILP is providing practical solidarity to their Indonesian counterparts. Whilst still true to their original aspirations ILP firstly needs to ensure the health of these communities in providing aid and financial assistance. 
You can help! Donate either through our website or in our bucket at the bar!

These works will travel to nine on seven Art space at the Rooftop Bar to be exhibited from December 17th until January 7th
