Exhibition – NEVER FORGET TO REMEMBER – Adrian Doyle – Dark Horse Experiment – Blender Studios.

NEVER FORGET TO REMEMBER Adrian Doyle Its been three years since controversial artist, Adrian Doyle’s last exhibition. This is a long time for an artist that has had over 20 solo shows. But the Melbourne based urban artist has been busy doing almost everything. In the last three years Doyle has created his own reality show, created large scale public murals, he offended much of the urban art world by painting Rutledge lane Baby blue, and had one of his public art works changed after Doyle painted a portrait of his dad on the cross. More recently he created an

Exhibition – Post Graffiti Pacific – aMBUSH Gallery – Sydney

Some of my favourite kiwi artists are heading down to Oz this week, with another rad group show at aMBUSH Gallery – Post-Graffiti Pacific. Held at the new space that those Sydney legends Bill and have put together “Post–Graffiti Pacific is not just another graffiti exhibition. It’s a statement and a definition – a bold assertion of language, history, culture, expression and the significance of place in art making. Curator Olivia Laita and her line-up of seven leading Post–Graffiti Pacific artists are proposing, with conviction, the dawn of a new movement in art. Post–Graffiti Pacific features the multidisciplinary work of Auckland-based artists

Exhibition – Tipping Point – Theo Robinson – House Of Bricks

Tipping Point Theo Robinson, 2015 The art in Tipping Point is the result of four years of painting, both in the studio and on the street, culminating in my first solo gallery show. This show has been inspired by the aesthetics of minimalism, abstraction and suprematism, as seen through the lens of graffiti, street art and muralism. Over the past four years I have experimented with textures, application methods, shape, design and colour to develop images that have a sense of movement and depth. In each image I aim to capture the dynamic movement associated with the creation of form,

Submissions Wanted – Yo Gobo – Electro & Stencil Light Exhibition – Melbourne

We love anything to do with technology, and we love emerging new forms of artistic practice – and this is no exception. Those of you who have seen stuff including the recent White Night event that was on in Melbourne know the power of projection and the potential inherent in this form of "Street art".

Now, Electrolight are teaming up with Fed Square, and they’re looking for people to get involved in their next big project "The Light In Winter" – budding eletroc light artists, this is your call out …

"Electrolight, in association with Fed Square is excited to announce a joint initiative for The Light in Winter 2013.

‘Yo Gobo’ will see a selection of designs realised as unique gobos and displayed in a public art projection in St Paul’s Court, Fed Square over the Winter Solstice celebrations from 20th to 23rd of June. All entries received will be displayed on Fed Square’s Big Screen on the evening of 20th June during the Solstice Weekend.

‘Yo Gobo’ will be a prominent, active part of The Light in Winter and a highly visible attraction at Fed Square for it’s duration.

Submission are now open. Check out the Yo Gobo EOI and get involved…."

Heres a small run down on whats involved – check out the info PDF here.

"The Light in Winter at Fed Square is entering its 7th year and again plans to bring together communities, artists and designers from many backgrounds to explore and creatively realise ideas about light. The central theme for the 2013 festival is to connect light and the power of voice – its physical power, its power of communication, its democratic power and its power to uplift and heal.

The Light in Winter is produced by Fed Square Pty Ltd and directed by Robyn Archer, one of Australia’s most beloved and successful artists. The burgeoning program is now a high-profile annual event in Melbourne, and has national and international recognition.

In 2013 the program will see all activities, workshops, performances and displays anchored around a key installation by artist Bruce Ramus. The commissioned piece is called the Helix Tree, a 13m-high light sculpture equipped with advanced sound and light technology which means it can be activated by sound and voice.

‘Yo Gobo’ will see a selection of designs realised as unique gobos and displayed in a public art projection in St Paul’s Court, Fed Square over the Winter Solstice celebrations from 20th to 23rd of June.  All entries received will be displayed on Fed Square’s Big Screen on the evening of 20th June during the Winter Solstice Weekend.

‘Yo Gobo’ will be a prominent, active part of The Light in Winter and a highly visible attraction at Fed Square for it’s duration.

WHAT’S A GOBO?

A gobo is a metal disk with holes cut into it, through which light passes to create a desired shape or pattern. In effect, it enables stencil art to be created with light.

EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

Designers (of all disciplines), architects, design enthusiasts, individuals, companies and collectives, from Australia and around the world, are invited to submit images/gobo designs for inclusion in the project.

All complying designs will be displayed on the evening of Thursday, 20th of June. A selection of entries will be cut in to steel gobos and displayed on the facade of Fed Square’s E-Shard Building (Flinders St) from the 20th to 23rd of June.

If you are interested in participating you will need to complete the Submission process "
