Somewhere in the CityÂ exhibition opened at Arts Project AustraliaÂ in Northcote, Melbourne on the warm afternoon of Saturday 13th of June. Â AÂ gallery that supports and promotes the work of artists with intellectual disabilities, advocating for their inclusion in contemporary practice, Arts Project Australia hosted a packed out gallery of old and new friends who came along to the opening.
