Analog

A night of analog art and live music at this St Peters artists' studio.

Tortuga Studios lies at the beginning of the non-trendy edge of the Inner West, at the very end of King St, where the restaurants and homeware boutiques give way to an industrial zone pocketed with little explosions of culture every block or so. It may look like every other anonymous building on the Prince Highway, but behind Tortuga’s facade is a multi-level maze of studios which a very active, very committed collection of artists call their workplace.

Ever wondered where those glorious wheely bin sound systems you see at street parties come from? Yep, Tortuga. And there are dozens more industrious artists and designers whose work you’ll be able to see next time Tortuga opens its doors to the public for its group show Analog. The show will explore the divide between the uniform perfection of digitalisation against the timeless appeal of the clicking clock hands, passing frames of celluloid film and the handmade painted portrait

Just as vinyl- and book-lovers are resisting digitalisation, Tortuga is an artist’s community holding on to its own grassroots. This night of art and live music from over thirty local artists is our chance to be part of it. The exhibition continues until July 22.
