Join The Amazing Rolling Picture Show crew as they pull up in the recently closed Market Row off Druitt Street - right beside Town Hall. This week, until 17 November, they present the video work of Liam Benson.
The Amazing Rolling Picture Show connects video artists with our city, creating intimate installation spaces amongst Sydney’s laneways. The program incorporates 12 unique artists exhibiting on two rickshaw viewing screens in a new laneway each Thursday night.
These rickshaws have been converted into portable projection contraptions, which are cycled to selected destinations within Sydney's CBD. The unique projection hubs allow for video artists to exhibit outdoors with ease like they’ve never been able to before. The six-wheeled rolling guerrilla carnival is assembled and dismantled each exhibition night, self sufficiently able to display single or duel screen video installation artworks.
With the aid of these two cheeky rickshaws and a lot of pedal power, The Amazing Rolling Picture Show is created by Sydney’s custom bicycle creator Stallion Bikes (Sarah Langdon), 1/3 of international video art collective VIDEOKILLS (Emma Pike) and is supported by the City of Sydney Laneways Public Art Program 2011.
