16 May - 28 June
The last decade saw the rise of a new art form as thousands of aerosol based stencil paintings appeared in Melbourne’s laneways. Melbourne became known as ‘stencil capital’. Before long stencil art evolved and moved from the street into the gallery.
Showcasing over 200 works from private collections by key artists including Psalm, Phibs, Haha, Meek, Meggs, Rone, Ghostpatrol, Satta among others this exhibition presents the formative period of one of Australia’s most dynamic art movements.
Curated by JD Mittmann, director of the Melbourne Stencil Festival 2004 - 2008.
During the exhibition come along to Guided Tours with Melbourne Stencil Festival director JD Mittmann, join local artists Hugo Racz, Amy Middleton and Brit Westaway creating murals and stencils in Burrinja's Studio 5 and engage with Jacqui Grace's Kids Corner activities.
