Art Month Sydney 2014

Art Month Sydney has just announced all the events, exhibitions, and details for this years schedule so we thought we’d recommend a few things that might be of interest.

If you’re into street art, and would like to witness a rather rare sit down with Lister, Askew, Beastman, Scott Marsh and gallerist Tim Olsen talk about it’s progression into galleries click here

For more talks, visit the Collector’s Space to hear ‘The role of the art critic’ OR ‘Trend Watch’. Another noteable talk that would be quite interesting is the ‘Aboriginal public art in context’ including Reko Rennie, Jason Wing and Tony Albert.

If you’re in the Inner West, then check out either the Leichhardt Open Studio Trail or the Marrickville Open Studio Trail.

For those of you interested in Street Art and Graffiti, Scott Marsh will be teaching a masterclass in all things street art. Get together with the artist and create a collaborative mural on a wall in Camperdown.

Last but not least, towards the end of each week the Art at Night programme will be running. View all of the various spots here.

Aside from these events, there are alot more things happening. Just find out for yourself on the Art Month Sydney 2014 website.

Backwoods is hosting a group show of epic proportions (no pun intended). ‘A study of eyes’ sees the gallery group together some of the world’s best to examine the eye.

Opening: Anthony Lister “The Beautiful Misery” at Olsen Irwin – Sydney

Anthony Lister has recently made Sydney his home and has been busy preparing for his show at Olsen Irwin tonight. This is a big step for the artist who until this point has showed predominantly at younger galleries. Taking his work into an institution like Olsen Irwin is a big move and an ever bigger achievement. If you’re in Sydney, get down.

Outside: Liverpool mural program

The Liverpool district is about an hour west of Sydney and has recently had a small and sporadic face lift by some of Australia’s most active low brow artists. Anthony Lister, Jumbo, Numskull, Skulk, Birdhat and Will Coles each headed out to separate locations and left their mark on a series of buildings and constructs.

It’s great to see councils outside of the city giving artists free reign to create beautiful murals, without restrictions. Definitely a first for the area, and something that City of Sydney needs to consider…

Oi You street art festival – Adelaide

Adelaide doesn’t get as much attention as it should. We’ve been there a bunch of times and experienced some of the most talented and hard working artists in the country do their thing. For example Vans The Omega is from Adelaide, and he is one of the most recognized graffiti artists in the world. Also for example, Rawhide (Ankles & Smiles) are some of the busiest and most creative roller/type artists we’ve come across. We could go on, but we won’t, because Oi You Festival is going to showcase all that Adelaide has to offer and ALOT more.

Boasting the Oi You collection (remember that mammoth Banksy collection that was at Outpost?), a series of local showcases and some large scale murals by Rone, Anthony Lister and Beastman. If all that doesn’t grab your attention, then maybe the blow video will or find out more here. Stay tuned for some coverage while the event is on.
