Rising Festival with Hublot in Melbourne


Rising Melbourne x Hublot

Describing itself as a “surge of art, music and ceremony at the rise of the full moon”, Rising Festival promised to be exactly the sort of event needed to salve the soul of a lockdown-weary Melbourne. Unfortunately, as luck would have it, the festival that kicked off on the evening of the total lunar eclipse has (pending further updates) been put on ice, as a result of the recently imposed snap lockdown.

A Miracle Constantly Repeated

As a renowned patron of the arts and supporter of cultural exhibitions, Hublot was named the Official Timekeeper of the Melbourne-based festival. And so, on the night of the full blood-red moon, we welcomed Hublot watch enthusiasts for a dinner and guided tour of Patricia Piccinini’s Flinders Street Station exhibition, ‘A Miracle Constantly Repeated’, by the artist herself.

 

Patricia Piccinini’s Flinders Street Masterpiece

Hidden for decades, Flinders Street Station’s mysterious ballroom hosted Piccinini’s immersive ecosystem; an  empathetic vision of the future, replete with hyper-realistic silicone sculptures, audiovisual installations and light works devised by the internationally renowned Australian contemporary artist.

Hublot Collector Dinner at Supernormal

The dinner was held at Supernormal – a Melbourne icon by x-factor chef-restaurateur Andrew McConnell. Known for blending Asian-inspired flavours, Supernormal was the perfect venue to discuss Hublot’s “Art of Fusion” watchmaking philosophy with passionate local collectors.

Rising vow’s they’ll be back. We’re all looking forward to it!
