Lister in Miami

We caught up with Aussie artist Anthony Lister back in Miami ahead of his show at Lazarides Rathbone, entitled Hurt People, Hurt People. Love or hate this loose cannon of creativity, he always has some interesting things to say about society at large. We chat about his arrest in Brisbane, freedom of visual speech and the World’s Longest Suicide Attempt.

VNA 18 Special Edition by Conor Harrington

VNA 18 is fronted by the one and only Conor Harrington, and in true VNA style, as well as the regular copies of the magazine, there will also be a Special Edition of 150 with a screen printed cover and limited edition postcards.

It’s a five-colour screen-print based on Conor’s small paintings, known as ‘Studies’ or, as he likes to call them, ‘Morning Glories’. This edition will be signed by Conor Harrington….

As usual, 80 of these will be available exclusively at the London launch, 20 in our online lottery and 50 will be sent out surreptitiously to stockists around the world.

If you would like to enter the online lottery and be in with a chance of getting your hands on one of these, please email ltd@verynearlyalmost.com to register your interest. Any emails sent after 6pm on 15th March will not be counted.

Alternatively if you are in London then why not head down to our launch party at Lazarides Rathbone Place Gallery on 15th March; doors open at 6pm but arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Thursday Evening

As we prepare our bodies for the onslaught of free alcohol and art appreciation that Thursday has in store for us, I thought I’d provide a brief rundown of what’s on offer in London tomorrow night.

Sickboy – Heaven & Earth
VNA 14 cover artist Sickboy opens his latest show at Number Six, Dray Walk. As well as an entirely new body of work, you can expect to see installations created in collaboration with some of the biggest names in Street Art & Graffiti, incuding D*Face, Eine, Anthony Lister, Conor Harrington and a whole host of others. As if this wasn’t impressive enough you will also be able to clamber into a confessional booth and regale your naughtiest stories (anonymously of course) to a Pastor, as part of one of the main interactive installations entitled CONFESS. All I’ve got to say is beware of eavesdroppers and alcohol induced verbal diarrhoea.
