artRiot: art for radical social change

The Lurkers are part of the artRiot collective, which is curating a multi-disciplinary exhibition and performance as part of the Sydney Fringe (10-26 Sept 2010). 

We’re currently on the hunt for radical artists whose creativity is changing the world. Submissions are now open!

We are seeking art from Sydney-based artists that can change people’s lives and help to create radical social change for a better future.

Expressions of interest are now open for an interactive, multidisciplinary exhibition upstairs at the Annandale Hotel as part of the Sydney Fringe Festival.

artRiot is looking for radical works: the exhibition is not targeted at working families and it’s not a feel-good campaign.  It’s about meaningful art that is honest, uncompromising and dangerous in a way that dares audiences to believe in a radically different world.  Any art form is fair game: music, fashion, sculpture, photography, fashion, crafting, graffiti, tattooing, painting, poetry or any other form of creative expression.

We know that art can change the world – from Peter Dombrovski’s pivotal photograph of the Franklin River to the music at the heart of the struggle against the apartheid in South Africa. We’re asking contemporary Sydney artists to show how their art is creating radical social change.

Round one expressions of interest close May 31st.  The exhibition will run at the Tap Gallery in Darlinghurst from the 20th September to the 3rd October.  Submit your ideas here: http://artriot.org.au/eoi/
