KRAFT OF MANN – A COLLABORATION WITH BEN LESLIE


ARTHOUSE – KRAFT OF MANN
A COLLABORATION WITH BEN LESLIE
Adelaide Central Markets
May 26 – May 29

Kraft of Mann small

ARTHOUSE is a satellite project curated & presented by Brigid Noone, independent curator and Director of Fontanelle Gallery & Studios.

ARTHOUSE is a public art project contained in a traditional glasshouse. It showcases a range of art forms and manifestations through weekly installations that embrace an experimental gallery framework. ARTHOUSE is a weekly-programmed space that will be installed for a month in the busy Adelaide Central markets, as a site for public encounter and interaction. Artist teams include Sera Waters / Ryan Sims, Sasha Grbich / Dominique Keeley, Ben Leslie / James Dodd, Jessie Lumb / Elyas Alavi.

James Dodd and Ben Leslie will be spending time together in the space talking about the idea of garden sheds, mens’ creativity and backyard crafts. They will be extending the jamming nature of this project by way of riffing off of each other’s recent individual practices. In this way, one of the primary pursuits of this project is to produce some kind of mash-up collaboration album.Think hyper colour cave man vessels, obscure prehistoric inscriptions and the anxiety of contemporary 30 somethings.

NOW & THEN – A 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION


Second Story Studios, 159 Sackville Street, Collingwood
Opens 6pm, Friday May 16

Now & Then Flyer v4 lo res

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 in bringing imagery most commonly found on the street into a gallery space. Many things have developed in the decade since: in the artists, the communities, the spaces and the contexts in which they all operate. Now & Then is an exhibition that presents early works from these artists alongside more recent investigations in a celebration of times past and time’s passing.

The exhibition will be open from 11am – 5pm on Saturday 17th May and Sunday 18th May.
