Shoot from the Hip

15 April – 17 June 2017

Gallery One

Shoot from the Hip examines the proliferation of Hipster culture and its subsequent impact on contemporary Australian art. From the subversive, to the ironic, the exhibition highlights the unique approach made by Australian artists in responding to the subcultural rejection of mainstream society through Hipsterdom. A sense of nostalgia is incorporated with technological advances, whilst having a passion for fashion see the fusion of style and wit in a form of sartorial satire. Featuring the work of The DC Style Fylez, Clinton Freeman, Luisa Rossitto, Kristin Tennyson, Ian Tunbridge, Samuel Tupou and The Wandering Room, Shoot from the Hip examines the artisanal authenticity and encompassing Hipsteria surrounding this movement.
