Recap: Void Project – “Homeless” Art Residency

Back in November, Void Projects organized their second Homeless art residency and group exhibition at artist Axel Void’s home in Miami. Roughly 15 artists from around the world were invited to stay in the house over a period of two weeks to eat, sleep, and create together. The idea of this year’s residency was to explore the concept of “home” from a political, social or personal viewpoint, based on cultural heritage, identity or patriotism. The results of that experimentation transformed this residential home into a very special kind of exhibition. […]

Streets: Bushfire Brandalism (Australia)

Last week, a new public art initiative took place on the streets of Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane, when 41 Australian artists brandalized or replaced 78 advertising posters with bespoke thought-provoking images and messages. Following the ongoing efforts initiated by now international movement Brandalism, the newly installed images speak to the current climate crisis seen via devastating drought and unprecedented bush fires. As a direct reaction to the feelings of hopelessness and powerlessness experienced nationwide in recent weeks, the posters promote direct access to relevant information with over […]

Videos: The Tunnels – Nuart 2019

We’ve just received this experimental movie from the Nuart Festival headquarters, put together by Ukrainian art film duo MZM Projects, the makers of the famed Imaginary City film. Using fragments of artist talks, excerpts from the news, interviews and curatorial text by festival director Martyn Reed, the filmers resampled and infused these with the lyrics from Tricky’s Brand New, You’re Retro, 1995 track (by the Bristol artist and producer from which the exhibition took its cues). Taking a different angle to capture and present the vibe during the […]

First Look: Banksy – “Gross Domestic Product” (Greater London)

An unusual new housewares “store” called Gross Domestic Product opened overnight in the south London town of Croyd0n. Turns out Banksy has now confirmed that the elaborate art installation is his, an attempt to hold off a greeting card company from seizing legal custody of his name by creating his own range of merchandise. The showroom on view for two weeks and featuring its own security guards will never open its doors, with all eventual sales being conducted online. No word yet on exactly what, when, or how […]
