A digital library for independent publishers, focusing on art books
and fashion magazines called “No Layout”
Merry †mass From Forth Thread
On show will be numbered and signed limited edition prints, plus original works in
ink and paint. The show continues the themes of Bens previous solo show -
‘Kill your Idols’ – which combined celebrity, junk culture, zombies and skulls
in a graphically charged visual extravaganza. These new works pick up
where the previous show left off and the iconic images that are burned in
to our collective cultural psyche are given a new life… albeit as the living dead.
There will be a bonus live performance from rock ‘n’ roll demons Hong Kong,
who have been burning up various floors around town in recent times with
their melodic skuzzball wall of sound.
Opening Night: Friday 10th December 6-9pm.
Come and join us for a Christmas drink! We have loads of new goodies in the shop too, along with all the latest Art Books and Mags.
Exhibition is open from 11th December to 24th January.

On December 16th 2010 at 1000 Pound Bend Gallery, over 30 posters, featuring international artists and designers, will be on exhibition and on sale for $30 at the Melbourne Edition of HELLO. The posters will additionally be on exhibit at hellopostershow.com. The proceeds raised from the show will benefit StreetSmart Australia, an organisation supporting and strengthening smaller, grassroots community efforts helping the homeless. More info at StreetSmartAustralia.org.
To date, posters have sold to a worldwide audience raising over $3500 and we are hoping, with support of the Melbourne community, we can raise much more.
Special Thanks to Katy Robinson of CaptainRobbo.com for the prints, Spicers Paper and The Burnells
