I can still remember attending my first exhibition of Daeks work in Melbourne, at the much loved and lamented RTIST Gallery.

Exhibition – Bitetime – Ian Mutch – Just Another Project Space

Celebrating the release of a brand new ‘superzine’, “Bitetime” is a selection of artworks, drawings, random travels and experiences, by Ian Mutch. The exhibition explores beauty through nature and narrative, capturing snippets of the artist’s life. From his childhood in Africa, travels through Asia and Japan, to the surrounds of his coastal studio in south-west Australia, these artworks immerse the viewer into a detailed view on the world. “Bitetime” is both an exhibition and a mini journal – a limited edition art booklet, neatly packaged with a build-yourself bitetime character and vinyl sticker. Ian Mutch is no stranger to print.

Exhibition – Apocalypse – Jonathan Guthmann – Backwoods Gallery

This body of work, simply but appropriately titled “Apocalypse” consists of a series of images based on the last book of the Bible: Revelation. This late first century visionary text purports to describe a series of prophetic visions delivered to an imprisoned Christian apostle, who reveals himself in the text as “John”. The visions contain some of the most vivid, powerful and at times disturbing images in our literary heritage. Guthmann, himself a student of the critical study of religion, is currently working on a written thesis which evaluates the cultural and literary background of the text of the Apocalypse,

Event & Exhibition – Si Señor Popup Art Taqueria & Laneway Festival – Melbourne

Ironic, I know. Its all okay though, as I can live vicariously through the internet, and if I want a taco, I can just step outside the hostel and walk five metres!

For those of you, though, who are in Melbourne this weekend, and the following weeks, this event looks absolutely awesome – and if you like all things Mexico, taco, street art and laneway-lush, then this is for you!!
