Some of the Festival’s showpieces are installations revealing the hidden history of Fitzroy. These emotionally and spatially moving works reveal Gertrude Street’s important and sometimes hidden Indigenous history.

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

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.
