Always on Vacation was a group show displaying the work of thirteen Sydney-based emerging visual artists and musicians.
The exhibition provided a platform for them to explore and articulate their response to the concept of ‘vacation’ and present their creative practice 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 dissected the concept further, treating our capacity for dreaming and imaginative escapism as an opportunity for vacation that never leaves us.
Regardless of their approach, the Always on Vacation artists shared in the search for the glimmering moments of reprieve that can be attained simply through creative expression.
The exhibition launched in July 2012 at aMBUSH Gallery Waterloo with work from exhibiting artists Dejon, Birdhat, Tdub, Wet Lungs, Wolfkid, David Crystalface, Mr French/Refic, L E W, Skulk, Jael, Guy Verge Wallace and DABS BMX.
