Melbourne’s new urban art festival ‘Can’t Do Tomorrow’ is open from 20 to 29 February 2020 in The Facility, a warehouse space in Kensington. The ticketed event will showcase work across three exhibition zones curated by Toby Benador. Audiences will find ‘Unleash’ a selection of new work for sale by 80 independent artists, ‘Unlock’ comprises presentations from galleries showing both new works and charting the development of urban art, and ‘Unlimited’ is an immersive display of installation and experiential art from Alex Lehours, Callum Preston, Georgie Seccull – as well as Kaff-eine whose work ‘Infinite Thanks’ pays tribute to LGBTQI ‘rainbow deities’ and Michael Peck who prompts us to consider the postmodern condition, whilst floating in a sailboat within a shipping container.
