“Rather be Naked” is a show about exposure. Not necessarily of the lack-of-clothing variety, but of being seen and noticed. This group show was put together by the people at Whitespac3: a new online community for Australian artists.
Whitespac3 found a home for it’s curating debut at Mils Gallery. The beautiful loft space provided a perfect venue for such a diverse collection. Works ranged from the minute to the massive. With a brief so open to interpretation, the artists clearly used this opportunity to put forward expressions of themselves.
Photographers, painters, designers and sculptors all caught the call out for this show. We were thoroughly impressed by the standard of work. It’s not often that such high-caliber work from so many different disciplines are hung together in a single show.
Pick of the night (for me) was Simon Wheeldon’s stark charcoal drawings. I can’t explain why, but I was hypnotised.
Lots of people, guitars, cheese, wine and general arty fun.
Congratulations to Whitespac3 on a fantastic launch and to Mils for hosting – can’t wait for more… from everyone!
