Ian Strange [aka KID ZOOM] has been releasing snippets and teasers for his upcoming show Suburban for some time now. I have been following it closely on his blog but I had no idea that it was going to be exhibited here in Melbourne at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV).
From the NGV website:
Ian Strange: Suburban is a multifaceted photography, film and installation exhibition created by New York-based Australian artist Ian Strange. Since 2011 Strange has worked with a film crew and volunteers in Ohio, Detroit, Alabama, New Jersey, New York and New Hampshire to create, photograph and film seven site specific interventions incorporating suburban homes. The recording of these interventions through film and photographic documentation forms the basis of this new and groundbreaking exhibition.
This exhibition looks like it’s going to be something really different, I can’t wait until it opens. Held at Melbourne’s NGV, a proud supporter of Melbourne and Australian street art and graffiti, it’s exciting to see Ian’s show running alongside the likes of classical artists like Monet.
Ian will also be doing a talk “Talking Strange” on the 1st of August, details here.
