Treatment - Six Public Artworks at the Western Treatment Plant

Author(s): David Cross (ed)

australian art | contemporary art

Treatment was a public art project that brought together six Australian artists who each developed temporary commissions in response to the extraordinary Melbourne Water Treatment Facility in Werribee, west of Melbourne. This book, Treatment: Six Public Artworks at the Western Treatment Plant, documents the project. The book structurally and materially takes the reader on the bus tour of these works, in a series of photo essays from that perspective. In between these photo essays are aseries of texts and some of the archival material that informed the artists. The idiosyncratic typography, inverted materiality (coated for text, uncoated for photographs) and emoji cover all point to the rich irreverence of the artworks and the curatorial gesture.
