Melbourne based ink recycler’s Lousy Ink are hosting their first group exhibition, ‘Lousy Show’, which will celebrate local talent, featuring over 40 creatives.
BSIDE Gallery is set to open on the 15th of July with an electrifying group show celebrating the talent and diversity within Fitzroy’s creative scenes.
The show features an incredible lineup of both emerging and established Australian artists including Ben Frost, Abyss 607, Swerfk, Hancock, Frosk, Mike Eleven, Gigi, Goodie, Aaaron Grech, Kenz and Zamara Robison.
From street art and graffiti to fine art and installation this show will present the birth of a new era in the local arts scene: promoting an open and inclusive platform for both the artists and the audience that defies the norm of the traditional gallery setting. We want to challenge the existing paradigm and celebrate a diverse array of artistic practices and new conversations that keeps the Fitzroy art scene alive.
The Paterson Project will be one of Melbourne’s most exciting and important street art events in 2015. Elite talent from all over Australia will be painting together under one roof to raise money for The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation. Housed inside the ‘jewel of Smith Street’, the Patersons building’s top three floors will be transformed into one giant canvas for more than 100 artists. The Paterson is a heritage building that is to be demolished soon and redesigned as apartments. The history of the building spans over a century, and for the past forty years has remained a home to artists and musicians.
The project comprises of the top street artists, graffiti artists and stencil artists from around Australia. The event seeking to build a positive profile by giving back to the community, raising $20,000 for The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation through the auction of art created as part of The Paterson Project. In one week, up to 100 Artists will create vast collaborative murals and site specific installations over all three floors of the heritage listed Paterson Building.
This type of inspiring event has no precedence; never before has so many top street artists gathered and collaborated to give back to the community.
