Presented as a featured event of Art & About Sydney 2015, Project Five Volume 7 marks the return of one of aMBUSH Gallery’s longest running and most widely loved public arts activations. Since its inception in 2009, Project Five has been enlivening Sydney’s metropolitan precincts with the kinetic, multisensory wonder of live art and the immersive and inclusive experience of public art exhibition.
This September, Vans the Omega, Gemma O’Brien, Apeseven and Fintan Magee join the impressive ranks of Project Five artists past as the initiative’s most diverse and intriguing line-up to date. Located at and presented in collaboration with Sydney’s cultural hub Darling Quarter, Project Five Volume 7 launches on the evening of Friday 18 September with a free public opening event, where the Project’s three-day live painting event begins.
Throughout the duration of Project Five Volume 7, four original artworks by each Volume 7 artist will be on display in our outdoor exhibition space OPEN, located in Darling Quarter’s Civic Connector, and Sydney’s littlest artists will have the opportunity to learn new art making techniques from professionals at the Kids’ Urban Art Workshops.
At the conclusion of Project Five Volume 7, the four artworks created during the live painting event will be sold at an invitation-only charity auction, with all proceeds dedicated to a local non-profit organisation that helps disadvantaged youth to channel their creative energy into art and music. So far, Project Five has raised over $80,000 for the arts through its auctions.
