Futurelic Art Studio/Sci Fi Silos, 1 McRobert St, Newport. Phone: 0415 704 520
Head towards Williamstown, pass the Blackshaws Road turnoff , take the next left and … arrive on another planet.
Or so it seems.
Futurelic Art Studio is the mutant baby of Lixa Brandt.
Like her gritty studio/performance space itself, she is a far cry from the studied hipster veneer of inner-city galleries of cliched fame.
The upstairs loft and dungeon-like basement are used for launch parties, ambient music events and rehearsals, while Lixa’s sci-fi sculptures adorn the ground floor.
Open on Sundays.
