We are thrilled to announce after long last that Hayley Millar Baker’s new film work The Umbra has been commissioned for the RISING Melbourne exhibition Shadow Spirit in Flinders Street Station’s abandoned rooms, curated by Kimberley Moulton.

“Ascend to Flinders Street Station’s top floor for an exhibition that shares spirit worlds, heeding warning and bringing protection. Enter a new dimension where time undulates between the past and present, and where spirits and creatures of country ask us to listen deeply. Thirty of the most exciting First Peoples artists and collectives from across Australia, invite you into these realms.”
