Founder & Curator of BOX
BOX art project (2005-07) was in a corner entrance window on Elizabeth Street in Melbourne CBD, wedged between a bank and a motorbike shop. Din started the project as a way to extend participation in contemporary visual media, and the project was generously supported by Floate Design.
Din curated a series of one-off installations from artists including: Anita King, Constanze Zikos, Pandarosa, Andy Mac, James Dodd, Regan Tamanui, Naomi Tettmann, Lyndal Walker, Jessica Hutchison, Yasemin Sabuncu, Roh Singh, Matchbox Projects, Red Cabbage, Marilyn Jeanette, Jeana Bajic and Luke Noble.
It was weird fun with bankers, bikers and artists.
