Stencil Art Prize Forum - Saturday 17 October, 2pm
Since the turn of the millennium, we have witnessed the rise of stencil art as a movement, a medium, and a way to further engage the wider community in the discussion of art. In partnership with the Stencil Art Prize 2015, artists Joshua Smith, Michael Duncan, Trina Collins and Boo will discuss the rise of the stencil art phenomenon, hosted by art consultant Ariana Leane.
Topics that will be touched on include the definition of 'stencil art', the use of technology by stencil artists in the creation of their work, the Australian identity of the genre, and where we see it heading in the future. The forum will be followed by a Q&A with the public. This session is free. RSVP is compulsory to firstname.lastname@example.org
