Opening: Project 5 featuring Fintan Magee, Vans the Omega, Ape7 and Gemma O’Brien – Sydney

We are excited to hear that Project 5 is back once again in Sydney this September….

What started as an experimental foray into public art that sought to lift the veil on the elusive practice of graffiti has since exploded into an award-winning staple of Sydney’s annual cultural calendar. This year, we will see international artists Vans the Omega, Apeseven, Fintan Magee and Gemma O’Brien transform Darling Quarter’s Village Green into an open-air art studio that challenges the permeable borders of urban contemporary art.
