Melbourne Fringe Festival THE POWER OF 20


Share post:


Rare group exhibition from diverse local artists

The Power of 20 is a rare group exhibition showcasing new works from the diverse talents of both emerging and established artists, from of one of St Kilda’s longest standing artist collectives – the little gem that is ‘Artist’s Studio 106’, on Barkly Street in the heart of St Kilda.

Artist’s Studio 106 is one of the earliest (if not the earliest) artist collectives in Melbourne and this Melbourne Fringe Festival, it will open its doors for a rare glimpse and group exhibition. Started 20 years ago, in 1996 by an independent group of artists with a small arts grant from the City of Port Phillip – the aim was to provide affordable studio space for local artists. An ad was placed in the local paper, and over 60 artists came to the first meeting.

More than 200 artists have made use of the studios since those early days and currently around 20 artists work from the independently run space. Resident artists these days work across an incredibly diverse range of mediums including illustration, sculpture, painting, digital art, mixed media, and film, and often collaborate on each other’s projects. Works for The Power of 20 are loosely linked by the concept that greater power is created when we work together, and further celebrates the 20 year history.

Current resident artists and filmmakers include: Ulises Resendiz, Helen Gries, Heidi Knoepfli, Stephanie Leigh, Sam Slade, Josie Wadelton, Majenta Sky, Katrina Mathers, Kelly Lefever, Elena Berkovich, Sandie Wright, Maria Leonard, Miyuki Mardon, Zev Howley, Sarah Jayne, Ivan Malekin, Ruv Nemiro and Tamar Dolev An opening celebration will be held on Saturday 17 September 3-5pm and everyone is invited.

The exhibition will run throughout the Melbourne Fringe Festival and exhibited works will be available for sale.
