FAIL HARDER

KINGS ARI 2011 STUDIO ARTIST EXHIBITION

Kings ARI 

Level 1, 171 King St
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

6 May to Saturday 28 May 2011
Opening Hours: Wed – Sat, 12-6pm

Opening Friday 6 May 6-8pm

Artist talks and studio visit Saturday 28 May 4pm

FAIL HARDER delves into the notion that experimentation and failure are key elements to a well rounded studio practice. Often the biggest failures lead to the best unanticipated outcomes. Featuring our nine resident studio artists, the risk of failure is confronted head-on as they spend three days and nights together in the gallery participating in an intensive making frenzy. The community of a shared studio is amplified while innovation and insight into process are highlighted in this year’s annual KINGS ARI studio exhibition.

As part of the annual exhibition KINGS Studio Artists will be opening their studios to the public on Saturday 28 May from 4-5pm. This is a great opportunity to meet the artists and gain an insight into the unique studio environment at KINGS ARI.

Artists: Candice Cranmer, Bianca Durrant, Ben Millar, Andy Wear, C J Conway, Lucy Farmer, Fiona Williams, Rebecca Adams, Emma van Leest
