Live Red Art Exhibition

As a welcome break from attempting to gyprock my dodgy kitchen walls I headed down to Marrickville Markets for some much needed energy food. Not happy to see my favourite noodle man had already packed up shop I decided to go for the yummy spinach and cheese gozleme and then went halvies in a Brassiere Bread choc brownie which was to die for AND a double baked almond croissant, oh I am sooo bad!

Refueled, I headed over to the Live Red Art exhibition which was a showcase of art and activism. It was a competition that asked for the art to reflects the motto: “Another world is possible, but we must fight for it”. A condition of entry was that, regardless of the type of art entered, it must be protest art. The artists addressed a broad range of issues including war, sustainability, politics, womens sexuality in the media, refugee rights and climate change, using a variety of mediums. There was also a selection of posters from the Green Left Weekly archive. This was the first Live Red Art show, but they are hoping many more will follow.  Check out the exhibition catalogue for detailed information about the artworks and artist.

Art can be a very powerful tool which has the ability to inspire, challenge and empower. I am looking forward to future to events, art and gigs organised by the Live Red Art Collective.

The thought of heading back to the awaiting gyprock wasn’t too appealing. I thought an ice-cream from the “peace, love and icecream” van might help. Unfortunately they had already packed up or run out of ice cream by the time I headed home. Note to self: Get to the markets earlier to avoid missing out!
