Exhibition Launch – Remnant/Emergency Artlab

December 1, 2010 in Art, Calendar, Exhibition, Forum, Sydney+NSW

December 1, 2010 to December 10, 2010

The Sydney ‘Lab’ is a participatory project that highlights a tragic clash between two urban dwelling species – the vulnerable Grey Headed Flying Foxes who inhabit the Sydney Botanical Gardens – and humans. Both species ultimately depend on each other for extensive ecological functions and secure habitat. Despite this co-dependence – early next year the bats, which roost in the Botanical Gardens, will be forcibly removed.

What can we learn from this clash of two worlds? What might a heightened understanding of our unrecognised dependency teach us about the future of interspecies relationships? How can we better ‘think-in’ urban habitats for Australian wildlife? This Remnant/Emergency Artlab project set out to address these central questions.

Outcomes from the project will be exhibited as part of the X exhibition. 1st-10th Dec. UTS Gallery – Lvl 4 courtyard, 702 Harris St, Ultimo.

Space invaders: Australian street art exhibition (NGA) – closes 27/02/11

November 19, 2010 in Art, Calendar, Canberra+ACT, Culture Jam, Exhibition, Graphic design, Illustration, Street Art

October 30, 2010 to February 27, 2011

Space invaders surveys the past 10 years of Australian street art. Featuring 150 works by over 40 Australian artists, this exhibition celebrates the energy of street-based creativity and recognises street stencils, posters, paste-ups, zines and stickers as comprising a recent chapter in the development of Australian prints and drawings.

A major strength of Australian street art is its ability to mix pop-culture imagery with political messages. From hard-hitting protest to political satire, clever combinations of sarcasm, mockery and parody, the means to mix art, politics and the street press is now in the hands of a new generation of Australian artists.
