Melbourne City Baths is turning into a giant live art piece

Sign on, suit up and take a dive in the pool -- all for the sake of art. 

Going down as part of the Festival of Live Art, The Melbourne City Baths will feature two immersive art pieces in the form of Landing and SQUASH!

Landing is somewhat of an absurdist swimming carnival, with a harrowing twist. 

Landing is a continuous relay in which the distance between Manus Island and Australia will be collectively swum. Moving back and forth between the idea of home, punters are invited to attempt to swim the distance equivalent to the ocean stretch between Manus and Australia’s mainland. 

Meanwhile, SQUASH! is a grand tournament like no other – a series of exhibition(ist) squash matches between the athlete and her public challengers. Think bright lights, glitter cannons, cheer squads. 

Saturday March 17 at Melbourne City Baths. Details here
