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
