Performing Arts Tapestries theatre-related designs

SidelinesTheatre-related Designs1

Barry Kay's designs were intended as permanent installations in one of the foyers of the newly built State Theatre at the Victorian Arts Centre (since 2003 known as Arts Centre Melbourne), Melbourne. The four tableaux he created were to be hand-woven into tapestries. To harmonize his designs with their destined environment, he utilized monochrome vintage engravings to attain subtly homogeneous collage compositions illustrating the performing arts throughout the centuries.
