Carbon – Friday

Tonight marks the start of Carbon Festival in Melbourne. Kicking things into play for the weekend comes a special 30th Anniversary screening of seminal hip hop documentary, Style Wars – a movie that switched a world full of rebellious teenagers on to the expressive artform of graffiti.

Carbon-2013-Digital-Program

Original documenters of the scene, Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant will be in attendance (if they’ve recovered from jetlag in time) to host a Q&A session on the movie. The screening, which itself is presented by Aussie paint brand, Ironlak, is exclusive to Carbon ticket holders.

The rest of the weekend encompasses a series of talks from the top independent creative minds from around the globe. Forums focus on four main areas of discussion:

Building a Brand, Contemporary Art & Design, New Media, Film & Photography

Other highlights include the Adidas’ Colliderscope on the Saturday – a chance for creatives to collide under the influence of music from Swick (Mad Decent) and visuals from Eness – and New Era are hosting a Sneaker Freaker swap meet on the Sunday.

Vexta – Kochi – India

This documents the creation of a series of site-specific public street paintings, which flow through from Mattancheery to Fort Kochi. Each piece contains a thematic narrative which can be read in any order.

The paintings build on themes Vexta has been exploring in her work for some time. Conceptually her work explores themes of metamorphosis, transcendence and our interconnectedness with the surrounding environment, through the creation of contemporary, secular works which play with ideas of life /death and the feminine experience.

Travel and the creation of site specific work that reflects the locations that they are made are important in Vexta’s practice and her response to the environment plays a significant part in the process of conceptual development.
