This looks like fun if you are in the Sydney area, any event that includes Pure Evil, Anthony Lister and Copyright on the same bill gets my vote.
It's too early to write fluffy stuff so hear is the press release (in part):
Paste Modernism returns in it's second incarnation with a list of local and international paste-up artists such as: SMC, JUMBO, ZAP, PURE EVIL, COPYRIGHT, ROYAL, DRYPNZ, OLIVE47, BUNKWAA, RICO, KONSUMTERROR, FELIX, APESEVEN, MAX BERRY, BEN FROST, BRIDGE STEHLI, NUMSKULL, ANTHONY LISTER, HA-HA, DRAB, VEXTA, MINI-GRAFF, ESJAY, HOUL, CREON, JOHN DOE + MANY MANY MOREOver 40 artists have entered the space over 4 days before the opening, to transform the walls of Lo-Fi into a visual mash-up of pasted up creations, that is normallyonly ever seen on the streets. From hand painted colour to black and white photocopies, from screenprints to large scale drawings - the only restriction is that the workmust be on paper and must be able to be wheat-pasted to the walls of the gallery.In the same way that street art is a movement available to everybody, the concept of Paste-Modernism is not defined by any 'artist heirachy' or exclusivity and so the call-out to artists was open to everybody who wanted to particpate. In doing so we hope to generate not only a further appreciation for the artform but innovation by the artists as they work beside each other in the space.The exhibition will only be up for 4 days and will evolve over the duration of the opening as artists contiue to add and modify the walls as they see fit. Because of Pastemodernism's ephemeral nature, none of the artwork will be for sale, and will rely heavily on documentation to be uploaded to the internet for it to continue on..Curated by Ben Frost and Bridge Stehli.Venue: Lo-Fi Collective, 383 Bourke St, Darlinghurst, Sydney.
