Drew Pettifer Untitled (Billboard #6 - OutRage!)Opening: Tuesday 26 September, 7-10pm Dates: September 2017 - January 2018
Bus Projects is excited to present a new large scale print program that will occupy a 4.2 meter long wall in our retail space. This program will respond to aspects of our artistic program and socio-political issues of urgency.
The first iteration of this program will feature Drew Pettifer’s work “Untitled (Billboard #6 - OutRage!)” from the series “Still Revolting” 2012-13. Originally created for large scale presentation in exterior, public spaces, Drew Pettifer’s “Still Revolting” project is designed to confront the viewer with a series of ‘paste-ups’ that highlight the history of the LGBTQI+ rights movement.
