Attracting thousands of visitors annually the show provides a rare opportunity to see the work of tomorrow’s leading designers, illustrators, filmmakers, artists and animators.

the fun kind of feminism…are you a sk8tr girl?

Go retro by purchasing tix for the Roller Wars SRDL match on Sat 9 October. You’re in for a quite a  treat, as this match in particular features BLOODBATH, by bumpp.net.

BLOODBATH is a collaborative distributed artwork by Bump Projects in association with the Sydney Roller Derby League. BLOODBATH features artists Linda Dement, Kate Richards, Sarah Waterson, Francesca da Rimini, and Nancy Mauro-Flude, each with recognised track records in new media, data visualisation, mediated performance and/or work with embodiment or violence. At an all girl flat track roller derby game, Sydney, 9 October 2010, sensors on the helmets of players feed data to their five artworks, generating digital elaborations of the moves and collisions on track.

Tickets on sale via Ticketek…but I also heard rumours of a couple of double pass giveaways…WATCH THIS SPACE!

Do you think your prints could take Flight?

Hardware Gallery and Rew Hanks from the Sydney Gallery School are collaborating for the 4th year running. The 2nd and 3rd year students from Hanks’ printmaking classes are displayed with renowned printmakers sourced by Hardware Gallery. This year’s theme is Flight, and in celebration of visionaries such as Yves Klein and Leonardo Da Vinci, these emerging and established artists are asked to make better use of the gallery space than merely the floors and walls.

Don’t miss the launch | Tuesday 28 September @ 6pm | Hardware Gallery | 263 Enmore Road, Enmore
