You've probably heard that iconic American street artist Shepard Fairey is in town for Vivid Sydney. He's been installing his first Australian mural (visit 309 George Street between June 12 and 17 to see him do his thing) and he's giving a talk at Sydney Town Hall on June 17 as part of the Vivid Ideas Game-Changer program on his body of work and global street art.
He'll also be exhibiting 16 of his large-scale music-themed artworks at aMBUSH gallery's outdoor public art space, OPEN, in Darling Quarter from May 26. But as well as that, he'll be opening a newly-announced exhibition, Printed Matters, at Chippendale pop-up gallery from June 17 to July 9. First exhibited in LA in 2010, and slowly expanded with each city's showing, the exhibition explores the importance of printed material.
Find Printed Matters at aMBUSH Gallery and T-world Pop-Up Gallery at The Old Rum Store on Kensington Street, open 12–8pm daily.
