A huuuuge art exhibition is taking place tomorrow night above King O’Malleys in the city. It features 21 of Canberras’ best emerging artists’ (most of whom are recent graduates from the ANU School of Art) plus a decent serving of our best contemporary local music. Quite simply, it’s the best of Canberra’s underground artistic talent all in one place.
The most exciting aspect of the event is the location, which many of you may know. It’s located two stories above King O’Malleys in a huge space (the size of a football field) which was previously a church. The place is loaded with amazing hidey-holes, a truley wonderful space for this kind of event.
If you attended the ANU School of Art grad show just recently, you may recognise several of the artists’ work. I guess you could say this is the less ‘formal’ approach to a portoin of that collective. And less formal usually means more fun people…
