Mad Max related exhibition at Campbelltown Arts Centre

There is an article in the latest Australian Muscle Car magazine about an exhibition at the Campbelltown Arts Centre which is Mad Max related.

Apparently it's video art and photography based. The news that interested me was that there are not one but two MM interceptor replicas on display as part of the exhibition. One MM1 and one MM2.

There is a little info at http://www.campbelltown.nsw.gov.au/defa ... bCatID=491 and more in the mag.

Hey Daz

Great idea!

I don't know who'se cars are on display or who is organising the exhibition but you could try calling the Campbelltown Arts Centre and ask for the curator of the exhibition.

It'd be beaut to have a Bopper with the interceptors.

I've sent them and email, and if I get a response, I'll post back here.

I'm curious as to where they'll be getting the two interceptors from. It's not like there are a heap of them that we don't know about...

The exhibition is not car related, but "art" related.

Shaun Gladwell is showing the cars as part of his art display.
He owns a MM2 replica, which he shipped all the way to Venice Italy last year for a world art festival.

You need maps to get around it and days of queuing to get any sense of what's on offer. The Venice Biennale is the oldest contemporary art fair in the world and it's on right now. This is the 53rd Biennale, an event supposed to capture the global artistic moment. But as well as being the oldest, there's another feature that distinguishes Venice from other biennales and triennals around the world. It's the only contemporary art event that has national pavilions, making it the artistic equivalent of the Olympic Games. The modern Olympic Games began in 1896 and the first Venice Biennale was held in 1895.

There are 77 countries exhibiting in the national pavilions this year. Australia has been showing at the biennale for the past 30 years. Artists have included Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd, Howard Arkley and Patricia Piccinini. This year, it's the Sydney based video artist Shaun Gladwell.
