skshowcase-flyer

Curated by Ben Frost and Aaron Craig, SHOWCASE brings together a selection of NEW TALENT as well as some of the best Australian and international artists that have worked with Stupid Krap over the last 12 months.

Co-curator Ben Frost words Damo up on the show.

Damo: Tell us about the upcoming Stupid Krap Showcase?

BF: It’s an intimate snapshot of Stupid Krap’s footprint within the local and international art world – celebrating the amazing talent that we have had the pleasure to work with over the last few years, and some of the new artists we’re excited to showcase.

Blankspace Gallery will be filled from floor to ceiling with international artists like Sharktoof, Greg Gossel, Mysterious Al and Denial, as well as Australian artists who have been making it big overseas like Vexta, Twoone, Gemma O’Brien and We Buy Your Kids. Some of the new names that we’re excited to work with for the first time, such as Nathaniel Kiwi, John Avanti, Loretta Lizzio, Danilo Brandao and William Ngheim – will be well worth coming to check out.

Just Another Agency… Just Another Interview?

This is not Just Another Interview.  This is an interview with Toby, head honcho of ‘Just Another Agency’.  I have been lucky enough to hang out with Toby a few times and she is the hardest working person I have ever met!  The scene in Melbourne would not be where it is without her contribution.  Toby does. not. stop!  A ‘mum’ to almost 40 artists (and a ring-in VNA contributor), Toby kindly made some time to chat….

DW:  How did ‘Just Another Agency’ (JAA) come to exist?

JAT:  Upon moving to Melbourne from Perth in 2007 my partner and I at the time were looking for somewhere to live and we came across what I like to describe as “a squatters hole”. It was a 2 storey building containing three rooms downstairs and four rooms upstairs along with an amazing outdoor space. When we moved into it however there was no flushing toilet or electricity upstairs. However it very quickly became home. Once moving in everything else just happened. We turned the downstairs rooms into a shop front and gallery along with an outdoor exhibition space and started supporting emerging and established local, national and international artists. Located at 696 Sydney Road, Brunswick (Victoria, Australia) we only found it fitting to call the space ‘696’. However after running the gallery for three years, we decided to close taking what we loved from the space and transforming that into the agency.  Just like that, ‘Just Another ‘was born.

Brad Eastman (Beastman) originally curated the show, with around 65 artists from across Australia, along with a handful of international submissions.
