Escape The Panic At Prahran Square’s New Public Art Residency

Melbourne, along with the rest of Australia, is in the grip of a panic buying saga due to fear of coronavirus isolation. With the constant news stream showing shoppers buying bulk toilet paper, tissues, flower, and more, along with fights and wild behaviour, it might be time to seek an escape from it all.

Prahran Square—formerly Cato Square—currently has a public art residency running in the precinct, and artist Skübz Mope has captured the current state of the grocery world with a simple, but effective toilet paper mural.

The residency—called Your Turn—features members of south-east Melbourne’s Arts Hole Studio. Artists such as Chehehe, Glen Downey, Mitch Walder, Skübz Mope, and HWJ among others will continue to transform Prahran Square until Sunday 5 April.

You can find the artworks at the Chatham Street end of Prahran Square.

If that’s not enough, on Saturday 14 March a free concert called Global Rhythms will take place at the square, catch Kira Piru + Remi, Alphamama, and DJ Soju Gang from 5pm.
