Show Us Your Politics
3 – 14 August 2010
Kudos Gallery 9 Napier St, Paddington

With a last minute entry, I was accepted into this exhibition which opens on Tuesday and runs for two weeks in Paddington, Sydney. This is actually the first time I’ve been part of a proper exhibit – crazy, I know. Here’s what landed in my facebook inbox a week or so ago:

Art Revolt! Dare to make a work that’s a response to the oppressive world you live in! A call out for dangerous and insightful work! Comment on sexism, racism, homophobia, patriarchy, institutions, capitalism, corporations and environmental destruction! Art to inspire, annoy, educate, and empower!
“To be truly radical is to make hope possible rather than despair convincing.”

So, I promptly sent something across and found out Friday that I was in! Queue mad scramble to actually get the thing…

…printed. Just picked it up on the bike from King St, Newtown today en route to door-knocking the lovely residents of Stanmore asking their views on climate change and renewable energy. Anyway, it looks pretty great so I’m exciting about hanging it on Monday.

Consider yourself invited to the exhibition. The Lurkers will also be playing their subversive, home-spun bluegrass at the opening night, so don’t miss it!

Catch you there, Erland.
