I'll get to the point quickly cause this opens tonight. What we have here is a fashion and costume show at Bus Gallery featuring some of our favourite Melbourne artists (with some Sydney-siders and foreigners thrown in, presumably to guarantee at least some colour other than black). Curated by Patrick O'Brien, the participants are: Oliver Hextall, Alex Vivian, Fjorn Butler, Alexander Ouchtomsky, Sean Bailey, Kiki Ando (Japan), Harriett Morgan, Evergreen Terrace, Sally Blenheim, Hyper colour castle, Thomas Bernard (France), Circle Pit (Sydney), Dell Stewart, Tin and Ed, Jarrah de Kuijer. Since there's not a fashion designer in sight it should actually be good.
The exhibition opens tonight from 6 - 8pm so you probably won't have time to go home and change your outfit after work but there's a related event on tomorrow night so you can redeem yourself then. This one is a live show at Horse Bazaar featuring Cock Arquette, Animal Prophets and Circle Pit, who, if you don't know already, are fucking fantastic.
Here's the details:
