Capitalist Realisms BSG 322 Brunswick St, Fitzroy
I was particularly attracted to this group show because of the inherent contradiction in the title, “Capitalist Realisms”.
Products glint and glimmer, they are often out of reach in shop windows. Capital is the way living labour, people, have to produce goods and services, which they have to buy back as produce. It is this sense of alienation, and the possibility of overturning the system, that drives these paintings and photos.
Just Finished: Exhibition – It is right to protest Monday 28 September 2015 – Sunday 25 October 2015 at the GoGoBar ChinChin
Large protest photos, and installation, capturing the necessity of protest. The banners fly, sun shines through the leaves, words unfurl. This is a tribute to the people, in a bar, among the people of Melbourne. The 12 iPad installation shows scenes of the past year’s protests which have changed a leader of government if not a government. The work is a combination of previous videos and new ideas developed in a Creative Spaces managed studio. Creative Spaces is a program of Arts Melbourne at the City of Melbourne
