Location, location, location doesn’t just apply to real estate – arts initiative Dirty Playground is all about re-imaging spaces into working hubs and gallery spaces for artists.
In May Dirty Playground hosted its first exhibition at a bar, which is as good a place as any to get arty. This weekend GoGo Bar is the venue of choice as it launches a new exhibition from Hancock, one of Melbourne’s most respected street artists.
Since moving to Melbourne from Perth in 2011 Hancock has collaborated with heavyweights like Heesco, Rad, Boywolf. Check out these examples of Hancock’s Street Walls competition and Croft Alley collaborations.
The exhibition will cover Hancock’s more recognisable street works and more personal pieces. Apparently it’s going to be dark. Expect acrylic and aerosols inspired by friends and freaks on the street.
They’ll also be live music and DJs. If you stay long enough you might even get a table upstairs at Chin Chin.
Jessica Hackett’s story in Journey of a Thousand Smiles details her heroic activism in her deeds in the treatment of asylum seekers and refugees.
Performer Andi Snelling's one-person performance Deja Vu at Melbourne Fringe showed real talent through her exceptional body movement and facial expressions.
Casus’ Restrung is a combined musical and incredibly unique circus performance on fragility and strength.
Bail Out's plans to help out Melbourne's disadvantaged youth.
Snap away with The Fox Darkroom, a mecca for photography aficionados to learn all about the traditional methods of black and white photography.
It almost sounds like the premise of a reality TV show: pile a bunch of artists in a bus for seven days, send them across Mexico and see what happens.
