“Edition” 2010

It’s that time of year! The time for summer, parties and end-of-year mayhem.

“Edition”, the inaugural end-of-year exhibition of student work from the Bachelor of Photography and Situated Media will take place on Wednesday, December 8th from 8-10pm. This is the same night as the massive School of Design Graduate Show which starts at 5:30 in the UTS Tower. Think of our show as the “after party”.

“Edition” will take place at 50 Kensington Street, just down the road from the infamous Clare Hotel. The School of Architecture at UTS has been kind enough to let us commandeer a portion of their beautiful warehouse for our show. The architects will have their own monstrous end-of-year on December 3rd. More details here for the architecture show:

See you on December 8th!

JR Wins Prestigious TED Prize

Paris-based “photograffeur” JR won this year’s prestigious One Wish to Change the World prize from TED. Details on NPR’s “The Picture Show” blog.

From TED:

JR creates pervasive art that spreads uninvited on buildings of Parisian slums, on walls in the Middle East, on broken bridges in Africa or in favelas in Brazil. People in the exhibit communities, those who often live with the bare minimum, discover something absolutely unnecessary but utterly wonderful. And they don’t just see it, they make it. Elderly women become models for a day; kids turn into artists for a week. In this art scene, there is no stage to separate the actors from the spectators.
