AUSTRALIAN GRAFFITI / by scott marsh

'AUSTRALIAN GRAFFITI' IS THE LATEST SHOW BY AUSTRALIAN ARTIST SCOTT MARSH, A CONTINUATION OF MARSH'S STUDIO WORK WHICH AIMS TO BLUR THE LINES BETWEEN ART & VANDALISM BETWEEN THE HIGHBROW & LOWBROW ART MOVEMENTS. THIS BODY OF WORKS COMBINES THE AESTHETIC AND TECHNIQUES FAMILIAR IN GRAFFITI CULTURE WITH CLASSIC MOTIFS FROM THE FINE ART ESTABLISHMENT.
  
THE SHOW WILL NOT BE A TRADITIONAL ART SHOW SET IN A GALLERY AS ONE WOULD EXPECT BUT RATHER A POP UP INSTALLED AND VIEWED, UN SANCTIONED IN A MOVING SYDNEY TRAIN CARRIAGE. MARSH IS REAPPROPRIATING THE TRAIN AS BOTH HIS CANVAS AND GALLERY, BEGGING THE QUESTION IS THIS ART OR AN ACT OF VANDALISM? 

ALL ARTWORKS/INSTALLATIONS ARE TEMPORARY AND WILL BE DISMANTLED AT THE SHOWS COMPLETION, WITH NO DAMAGE TO SYDNEY TRANSIT PROPERTY.  

--------

GUESTS CAN BOARD THE MOVING GALLERY AT CENTRAL STATION, PLATFORM 17 AT 7:06PM (IN THE LAST CARRIAGE), THE SHOW WILL TRAVEL ONCE AROUND CITY CIRCLE LINE. PASSING THROUGH TOWN HALL, WYNYARD, CIRCULAR QUAY, ST JAMES & MUSEUM STATIONS BEFORE PASSENGERS ALIGHT BACK AT CENTRAL, FOR A SHORT WALK (5 MINUTES) TO THE LORD GLADSTONE HOTEL FOR POST SHOW DRINKS WITH THE ARTIST (AND STATE OF ORIGIN FOOTBALL IF YOUR THAT WAY INCLINED).
