At the turn of the millennium Melbourne’s visual street culture was undergoing the beginnings of an extreme makeover. HA-HA, SYNC & DLUX! - pioneers of the city’s widely celebrated street art scene presented their first collaborative exhibition in 2003. It was an early experiment into bringing imagery most commonly found on the street into a gallery space. Many things have developed in the decade since then, in the artists, the communities, the spaces and the contexts in which they all operate. Now & Then is an exhibition that will present early works from these artists alongside more recent investigations in a celebration of times past and time’s passing.
Opens Friday May 16th, Second Story Studios, 159 Sackville Street, Collingwood
