WALLPAPER - JAMES GRIM

OPENING NIGHT TUESDAY 5th MARCH

The Bands, Lino, Sketches and Poster Art of James Grim (from 2005 - 2015)

Apart from earning a reputation as one of Australia’s most engaging frontmen for the formidable and infamous Brothers Grim and the Blue murders, James Grim also spent many years behind the scenes producing Rock Propaganda for local and interstate musicians, labels and venues as well as his own personal musical projects . Many of his early posters still grace the walls of The Oldbar, hence, It is fitting this Bar will be where his retrospective is shown. This exhibition will highlight both used and unused work that James Grim created during the decade of 2005 - 2015. Opening night is 5th March from 7pm. The night includes live sets from Thee Cha Cha Chas, The Ramshackle Army and La Severa

“James Grim was a fixture at Old Bar and helped us make it what it is today. Through his patronage, his bands and his artwork which we would get him to do for posters for upcoming events. Always loved his posters and looking forward to seeing them all in one place at one time” Joel Morrison (Old Bar)

AUTHENTIC SELF - PHOEBE VELDHUIZEN

OPENING NIGHT TUESDAY 26th MARCH

Satellite Gallery are proud to present Phoebe Veldhuizen’s first solo exhibition Authentic Self.

Phoebe Veldhuizen is a Melbourne based portrait photographer who is intrigued by the everyday and how photography can bridge the gap between reality and fantasy. Using various analogue photography techniques, Veldhuizen captures honest and intimate moments, allowing her diverse range subjects space to shine as their authentic selves

Veldhuizen’s six years as a photographer have shown her a world she didn’t know she could be a part of – allowing her to work alongside designers, musicians, artists and countless creatives across the world. This exhibition draws together a collection of subjects from New York City, Tokyo, New Zealand and Australia.

Authentic Self explores private moments that create a powerful presence when exhibited alongside one another. This body of work draws the viewer into intimate settings and allows new narratives to form. Through Valdhuizen’s unique lens, she breaks down barriers of privacy, authenticity and reality – revealing her own authentic self.
