Skins 'n' Sharps Exhibition
Sam Biondo presents:
Skins n Sharps exhibition 2010
Relive Melbourne’s 70s Sharpie Culture with a spectacular new exhibition of vintage fashion, artefacts, photos, art, music and footage on display.
Acclaimed Melbourne-based artists and musicians Fred Negro, Stephen Prictor, Paul Hughes, and David Mellows will capture the Sharpie era.
Melbourne band City Sharps will launch their new album CD ‘Suburban Sharp’. In a tribute to all things Sharp, legendary front man Chane Chane belts out the title track Suburban Sharp in pure Oz Rock style.
Julie Mac will launch her new book RAGE: A Sharpies Journal, Melbourne 1974 to 1980
A raw and real life story of Sharp as you’ve never read before. Follow Julie Mac and the Sharpies as they fight, punch and kick their way through their turbulent teenage years on the unsuspecting streets of Melbourne. It was a time when running from the cops, avoiding the ticket inspectors, drinking, spewing and rooting were all in a nights work, looking Sharp!
