Secret Art

IT’S TIME TO MAKE YOUR ART NOT-SO-SECRET...

The Darwin Fringe Festival has revived its Secret Art exhibition for emerging artists aged 14-25. It’s a chance for the young creatives of the Territory to share their latest creations, or create something new to the theme ‘pop culture’.

Producer and co-owner of Radio Gnome Records Roxanne Voulanas says she’s excited to see what young artists are up to behind closed doors.

“I don’t think emerging artists get opportunities like this very often,” she says.

“I hope the theme will be inspiring – especially for the age group. It’s the time when you’re most interested in pop culture and I think it should inspire some interesting work.”

The theme is non-compulsory, so if you’ve been toiling away on some work or have a piece you’re proud of that you’d like to share with the world, jump on board and register. The only requirement is the work can be hung on a wall and is no larger than 40cmx40cm.

The exhibition will be held at Radio Gnome Records in Air Raid Arcade and participants will also learn tricks of the trade about hanging work from local artist Matthew Van Roden.

“We’re really lucky to have Matthew to help – he’s got a lot of experience with hanging and the artists are going to learn a lot about how to hang their work professionally,” Voulanas says.
