2020? –
Ash Keating
Discarded material diverted from landfill has been unloaded at Arts House, Meat Market and reconfigured by Ash Keating and collaborating artists to create 2020?, an immense visual and conceptual project of unique installations, interventions, and object-based works. 

Objects in Space
Objects in Space is a series of surprising art encounters and disruptions scattered throughout the functional spaces of the city forming a microscopic version of the 2008 Next Wave Festival visual arts program 

The Counting & Ocular Proof –
Newly formed Melbourne based dance collective, Rogue, experiment with the creation of illusion and visionary limitations. Rogue presents the compelling double-bill Ocular Proof and The Counting exploring rhythmic tensions for the 2008 Next Wave Festival. 

Esky combines architecture, art, video, sound performance and spontaneous nomadic adventures. Inspired by the colloquial vernacular ‘portable cooler box’, Esky is a roving inflatable venue that will occupy peripheral and unconventional urban spaces.

Supported by – From dance to theatre to visual art to architecture, Next Wave has specifically curated an Arts House, Meat Market arts program that’s designed to challenge, excite and explore the Festival theme, Closer Together.
