The Broadmeadows Town Hall is a time capsule - a structure full of the fixtures, materials, textures and tones of 1960s architecture. Who Wants to Be the Broady Mayor reflects this history through textile design, while playfully considering both the buildings, and Broadmeadows' future. In this work the past and present meet, and visitors were encouraged to don the robe and chains of the mayor, pose and add their portrait to the wall of mayors.
Created as a part of Civic Heart. A collection of site-specific works of art by RMIT Art in Public Space Masters candidates and staff, at the Broadmeadows Town Hall. Supported by Hume City Council and RMIT University.
