SPACE INVADERS STREET ART EXHIBITION


I recently visited RMIT Gallery in the city where they are currently showing ‘Space Invaders’, an appropriatet;y titled exhibition show casing Australia street art which varies from stencil art to posters, paste-ups, zines and sticker art. There’s a strong Independants factor behind a lot of the work with strong opinions and political messages behind some of the pieces aimed at war and corporations with a mix of interesting visuals and thought provoking quotes. It’s good reminder of the importance of independents in creating something out of passion and for no other reason. Also show casing work is print maker Tate Adams who has a very interesting, dark style of work.

Exhibition dates for Space invaders and Tate Adams:  2 Sep- 5 Nov 2011
RMIT Galerry 344 Swanston Street, Melbourne

    This sounds awesome! it reminded me of when i was on the plane trip over to Europe and a watched the banksy “prankumentary” called “exit through the gift shop”, not sure if you have seen it but its very interesting and think you might like it.

    i actually saw one of the space invaders in paris, then started looking for them everywhere, here is what they look like:

    anyway might have to check this exhibition out

    Peace ;-{.]

      Yeah it was a really interesting exhibition. I’ve heard of “Exit through the gift shop” but I haven’t seen it yet. I def’ want to check it out though. That’s awesome! I’ve seen some graffiti stuff like that on the net but it would be cool to go overseas and see it 🙂

    I love the work u showed, the pieces out of context is great.
    The ‘spoiltgirl’ is a favourite and the ‘Controller’ they’re so simple yet they say a lot. Seems like a great exhibition, didn’t know about so thanks 🙂
