I recently found graphic designer Colin Harman who has created these fantastic Venn diagrams for his profession (how would you like your graphic design?). I saw this as totally appropriate for our industry and asked if he could make a small change. He was more than happy and sent some of these posters for myself and a few colleagues. If you are keen to get your hands on one of these puppies then contact him through his website.
We need an open competition for a new Australian Venice Biennale Pavilion. If you have not already signed this petition, please do. Go to the OpenHaus site and follow the instructions.
A big thank you to Phillip Cox for the temporary pavilion, I am sure he is looking forward to seeing the results.
The exhibition of entries is running for this week only until Sunday 26 June. Go take a look at Thousand Pound Bend Gallery located at the rear of 361 Little Lonsdale Street Melbourne.
Mon – Fri from 8am to 7pm
Sat & Sun from 11am to 7pm
