Wollongong City Gallery Exhibition (Dec 2014-Feb 2015)

Last week I started at the Wollongong City Gallery where I have been invited to curate an exhibition over the summer of 2014/15 celebrating the art, culture and history of the local music scene over the past 50 years. This is an exciting project and one which I hope to expand beyond the gallery walls, with events happening throughout the city in various venues. The SCS team have been given the entire bottom floor of the gallery to fill, and we have a number of ideas as to how we're going to do that. Most importantly though, this will be YOUR exhibition. This is your chance to display your memorabilia, and tell us about your memories via audio and video recordings, photographs, flyers, set-lists, newspaper clippings, posters, t-shirts, stickers, etc... Keep an eye on our facebook page, as that's where most of the stuff is happening at the moment, with this place reserved for larger, more detailed posts. I'll soon be putting the call-out for "submissions" by way of the above items. Please have a think about what might be stored in your attics, cellars, back of the cupboards, under the beds, that you'd be willing to share and contribute to our history. This is gonna be BIG! - Waz.

  1. Something seems to be wrong with the Facebook page link, but it really does look like an interesting exhibit. I'd love to find out more because I'll be around the Wollongong area that time of the year!
