Opening: The Hours presents ‘Stockroom’ – a group show

We are proud to announce ‘Stockroom’. A group show featuring some of Australia’s finest young artists

Over the years, The Hours (Beastman, Marty Routledge & Numskull) have produced a number of widely acclaimed art events & exhibitions around Australia and have worked with some of the most recognised young artists in a variety of different genres.

To celebrate these ties, The Hours presents ‘Stockroom’. A large group show featuring a host of artists that have either worked with us before, are working with us now, or are someone we’d like to work with in the future. A mix of connections between the artist and us, as purveyors of modern art, we believe this to be a perfect insight into “if we were to own a stockroom, this is who it would be filled with”.

Featuring:
MARK ALSWEILER, TOM FERSON, RONE, TWOONE, DANIEL O’TOOLE, SKOUNT, SCOTT MARSH, JUMBO, CHRIS LOUTFY, BAFCAT, JOEL BIRCH, BRIDGE STEHLI, BEASTMAN, EDWARD WOODLEY, SHIDA, MR PENFOLD, BENNETT, WILL COOKE, THE YOK, BEN FROST, RETRO, THOMAS JACKSON, KYLE MONTGOMERY, JAE COPP, FINTAN MAGEE, PHIBS, MADELEINE PFULL, NUMSKULL, AEDEN LEE, VANS THE OMEGA, ROACH, MAX BERRY, SHERYO, SID TAPIA, DAVID CRAGG, SOFLES & TAKIE
