platform vs. the mitten fortress
Stuff for you to do tonight and tomorrow people. This is the offical weekend word up so get yourselves sorted and be there or be like a four sided shape of some description.

Tonight is the opening of Repeat Repeat at Platform, featuring Carly Fischer, Annika Koops, Rachael Hooper, Adam Cruickshank, Natasha Frisch and the lovely and recently published Dell Stewart. Yep that's right people she's in I make stuff. The blurb on the Platform website describes the exhibition thusly; "In a contemporary culture of increasing information overload, unlimited access and hyper-production 'Repeat Repeat' deals with some of these anxieties and humors in such a climate. All artists employ obsessive processes of production, or observation, perhaps to mimic the drive that surrounds them and also to provide an escape through the meditative qualities of work. Within each artists process is also the element of analogue copy-catting, an upside-down reversion to hand crafted production at the expense of faster, more efficient means. Floating in between regressive nostalgia and progressive eradication, these artists deal with the strange place that the culture of repeat finds them in." Fascinating. We just know it will feature Dell's knitted rainbow, so we'll be there with bells on.
Degraves st. Subway TONIGHT 6 til 8pm.

Saturday offers up the Ghost Patrol and Miso open studio between 11am and 3pm. WOO HOO!They'll be showing both seen and unseen works along with some new self published gp books and acorn and cat-rabbit creations. And yes you guessed it, Ghost Patrol is another I make stuff bookee, and we love his work. This is an excellent opportunity to score some top drawer booty and get inside the mitten fortress at last. We'll be begging babysitters and trying to be there.
Saturday August 8, 11-3pm
