Come explore Cupid’s Koi Garden by ENESS this summer at Kaleidosquare! A riot of vibrant colour, Cupid’s Koi Garden is an immersive, six-metre-high giant fountain – a school of koi fish surrounding the cheeky cherub, Cupid.

Cupid and his Koi are watching you, and they’re ready to spray water on anyone who gets too close! Featuring 360-degree tracking technology, Cupid’s Koi Garden by ENESS is a wonder of art and science – and a must-visit destination this summer! Fed Square is pleased to present to you Cupid’s Koi Garden by ENESS for its world debut, as part of the Kaleidosquare summer program.

Reconstruct (the) Normative
Fed Square’s Atrium will be transformed this Midsumma Festival into a moving exhibition of photographic portraiture by Australian photographer Soraya Zaman. A constructed bridge will span the iconic space, as a metaphorical symbol of journey, connection and crossing over, which is intertwined with the subject of the exhibition. Australian born photographer, Soraya Zaman (they/them) spent three years travelling across the USA, meeting and capturing images of people in the trans-masculine community, from big cities to small towns. Zaman’s sincere and tender portraits intuitively capture each subject, providing viewers with a snapshot into their lives and journeys across the trans-masculine spectrum. Please be advised from 8pm onwards some of the content is rated M with adult themes.

Fed Live
It’s time, Melbourne. We’re bringing live music back this summer – so get ready to get down to the Square, throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care, and get your boogie on to the best local live music. Fed Live Launch kicks it out of the park with goodtime-glam stars of syncopation Hiatus Kaiyote as our headliner, supported by Ella Sweeney and band, BUMPY and WILSN – a sisterhood of soulful voices and badass beats evoking the spirit of this summer of freedom. Hot on their tail, we’re bumpin’ up the BPM with the electro beats of Daft Punk Discovery, followed by a collab special with independent label Hunnydew records – bringing you the heart-aching, soul-shaking vocals of Chris Lanzon and the moody-beauty of soft-alt-pop wunderkind Nick Ward. From the multi-Grammy-nominated to the hottest in local independent music – Fed Live is here to celebrate the best of Melbourne’s live music scene. Come join the party.
