Orbital is a exhibition space located within the exterior wall of the Aldi supermarket at Central Square in Altona Meadows.
The space provides a great opportunity to showcase culture. Local developer Brian Noordenne, Aldi, and Central Square helped to facilitate the arts through sponsoring its program.

Each exhibition will be locally curated or themed. Curators will be able to work with local schools, and community groups, and it’s planned that exhibitions will coincide with citywide programs like Art In Public Places. Exhibitions will be rotated three times annually, hence the name Orbital. Exhibitions are curated by Heather Van Heerwaarden.  

The exhibition display case, fitted with a lighting device that highlights the work on display, has been designed to house both small three dimensional forms and images.

Currently on show is Caring for Skeleton Creek exhibition which features artwork created by Grade 5 students at nearby Altona Meadows Primary School led by their art teacher Sarah Capri. The exhibition includes watercolour paintings, charcoal drawings with ‘found poems’ and various forms of printmaking. Students were inspired by a recent excursion to nearby Skeleton Creek where they took photos and learnt about the health of the creek and the impact of development on our local environment. Orbital is curated by Heather van Heerwaarden.
