bizarre members of a fabulous clan

Two of our friends are a part of an exhibition which opens today at No Vacancy in Melbourne. There is no opening party so don't go there tonight you will be disappointed. Do, however, go along sometime in October, except on Mondays, to see some of the collagey, multi-disciplinary goodness. There is a closing party on October 30th, so if you are the art party type, you could go to that.

No Vacancy is upstairs in the QV at 34-40 Jane Bell Lane, in the city.

Here's what they say about the show:

The 14 artists from Australia and New Zealand embrace an offbeat approach to art making. Exhibiting a mix of 1970’s influenced aesthetics, works in progress and a range of free events throughout the month of October.

The process of collage, or ‘cut and paste’ allows the artist to situate their interests and concerns into spatial and relational consideration combining mainstream and minority viewpoints, revelations of past and present with new and redundant technologies. The works will explore a range of ideas including interpretations and understandings of identity, kinship, community, spirituality, religion and personally transformative and psychedelic experiences.

No Vacancy gallery will act as a workspace for some, exercise and relaxation studio for others, and creative paradise for many. Audiences will be invited to align themselves with unusual activities, artistic processes, and work that is often humorous, intuitive, and evolving.
