Showing: TrustoCorp – “International Bank of TrustoCorp” @ The Outsiders Gallery (Newcastle)

Earlier this month, the street collective TrustoCorp made their debut outside of the USA with a showing at Newcastle-based Outsiders gallery entitled International Bank of TrustoCorp. Bringing their special form of satire and political commentary, the crew put on display a series of works that transformed the gallery into a counterfeit counting house that examined the power of currency. They state: “We’re exploring the power of money in our lives on a local and international level. From the high power gambling of Wall Street to the broken dreams of Main […]

Baby Tattooville ’12: Michael Hussar – “Wunderland”

As we continue our coverage of this year’s Baby Tattooville, we turn our attention to Michael Hussar’s Wunderland, which was a feature for the art retreat for the fourth straight year (see 2011). Those familiar with Hussar’s two night event quickly settled in while newcomers casually perused. As in the past, all of the action took place in Hussar’s suite. Models posed as muses deep into the night for Hussar and other artists to draw. Discuss Baby Tattoville here.
