I was not able to get to the launch at Hogan gallery in Smith St (the Collingwood side) of the Johnston St shop I like you / Kelly Jones, Nina Gudd and Rabbit exhibition on Tuesday 17 June 2008. I did manage to drop in on the Saturday afterwards to have a look. The exhibition finishes on June 29 so if you want to see it you’ll have to be quick.
Apart from the vibrant works I was impressed by the spirit of local cooperation and cross marketing evident in the exhibition. The manequins for the clothing were supplied by mei + picci, whose Johnston St window displays are often artistic or political statements. Like the recent Gorker gallery launch, which was sponsored by Bimbo Deluxe, it is great to see local businesses working together like this.
