Astrotwitch – Daisy Ducati, Fitzroy
If you’d ever wondered what Surrealism looks like in 2015 (as opposed to, say, the late 1910s and early 20s), this group show is well worth checking out. If you need more convincing, SWIFT and CTRL V have work in it…On at Brunswick Street Gallery from 29 May to 11 June. Want to meet the artists? Drop by on Friday May 29, from 6-9pm.
be free zine volume 8
Just got home after a long, cold day to find this zine in my mailbox. Be Free only made 50 copies, so I’m extra thrilled to have one.
