In 2009, Anthony Lister held a one-night-only pop-up art event in Sydney’s Kings Cross, entitled No Win Sitch. The show encompassed an installation in notorious Strip Club, Porky’s.
To mark the ten-year anniversary of No Win Sitch, Lister presents a brand new installation, CULTURE IS OVER, once again paying homage to the colourful old school Kings Cross culture.
The pop-up will be a week-long free exhibition for the public. Inspired by the Lister’s iconic artwork ‘Moloch of Luna Park’, 2017, attendees can expect a twisted trip into the paranormal mystery of Luna Park’s unidentified horned man, as well as the plethora of Kings Cross nightlife and characters, conveyed through his painting, sculpture and video installations.
Expect occult themes, introspective in-painting analysis of form and movement, Basquiat-style outpourings and Lister’s usual kickback against the cops.
CULTURE IS OVER opens Wednesday 17 July at 7:00pm.
