ALWAYS ON VACATION
Opening night Thursday 12 July, 6-10pm
Exhibition continued 13, 14 & 15 July 2012
Always on Vacation was a group show that sought to showcase the work of thirteen Sydney-based emerging visual artists and musicians. The exhibition provided a platform for them explore and articulate their response to the concept of Vacation, and to present their creative practise to a concentrated audience. Some of these artists interpreted the concept literally, depicting their signature characters in scenes and landscapes derived from destinations associated with travel and adventure. Others had dissected the concept further, treating our capacity for dreaming and imaginative escapism as an opportunity for vacation that never leaves us. However, regardless of their approach, the Vacation artists shared in the search for the glimmering moments of reprieve that can be attained simply through creative expression.
Always on Vacation was the collective result of those moments, and you are invited to join the artists on their adventure. The exhibition launched on Thursday 12 July at aMBUSH Gallery, Waterloo from 6-10pm, with live music from 8pm. Complimentary ice cold Viking Beer from Iceland were be served on the night.
