In partnership with the Stencil Art Prize 2015, Joshua Smith, Losop, Poncho Army, Boo; as well as Gallery Director Bill Dimas (aMBUSH Gallery) and Academic Dr Jacqueline Millner (Sydney University), will discuss key philosophical and artistic questions concerning the stencil art discipline.

Hosted by gallerist Ariana Leane, the forum aims to critically debate and question what exactly stencil art is and what it could be. With expert insight from panel members with broad backgrounds, the forum is a unique occasion to ask your burning questions.

This is the inaugural event for the Stencil Art Forum in Australia and we are excited to be hosted by our friends at the Stencil Art Prize. Key topics for discussion include; defining ‘stencil art’; is technology an integral aspect of stencil art; why stencil art here and now; and what the future holds for the discipline? The forum will be followed by a Q&A with an open invitation to ask questions.

The forum aims to encourage artists, collectors, professionals, enthusiast and the general public to take part in the discussion for what will surely be an insightful and interesting afternoon of artistic discourse.

aMBUSH Gallery, Saturday 17th October from 2pm for this free event.
Level 3, Central Park, 28 Broadway, Chippendale NSW 2008

23rd Key – ‘Keezus’

Melbourne based 23rd Key’s solo show ‘Keezus’ opens next week at Juddy Roller in Melbourne. She took time with Damo to give us the low down on the show.

DW: Tell us more about your upcoming show at Juddy Roller. What is the concept behind it?

23rd Key: The concept behind the show is ‘ego’. I’ve tried to dissect the medium and showcase it in a way that I’ve never seen any one else do it before. It’s about what it is to be a stencil artist and the inner battle we have with who we are, who we are perceived to be, and how the two differ. I feel like there can be a real distance between the artist and the ‘audience’ when it comes to art and exhibitions. With Keezus, the theme is one that’s very close to home for me but I also wanted to do something really different with how things are displayed. I really want to bridge the gap with this show, hopefully anyone who comes to see it will walk away understanding a little bit more about stencil art and have seen it like it’s never been seen before.
