Blu, David Choe, Miranda Donovan, Faile, Conor Harrington, Todd James a.k.a REAS, Paul Insect, Invader, Lucy McLauchlan, Antony Micallef, Polly Morgan, JR, Vhils, Jonathan Yeo, Zevs Outsiders brings together the work of fifteen international artists who have emerged from the edges of the mainstream art world to produce some of the most exhilarating and original works on the contemporary scene today. Some of the artists in the exhibition make their mark quite literally outside, on the walls of the towns and cities across the globe; others work solely indoors, in a more traditional way. A handful have received no formal art school training. Collectively, the artists share a desire to exhibit work in an environment which directly resonates with their audience. These artists cannot be grouped together stylistically but are linked more readily by attitude. Featuring video, sculpture and work created directly onto the gallery walls, Outsiders mirrors the ethos of the Lazarides Gallery with which all the artists are affiliated. This unique operation has challenged the definitions of 'urban' and 'street' art by bringing the outside, in. In association with Lazarides Gallery, curated by David Thorp.
