Empty Show 2002

A short music video documentation of the first Empty Show in Williamstown, Melbourne 2002.

"I created this while video working for the Melbourne community tv show Access News as a creative way to document the first Empty Show exhibition, which a number of well known street artists around Melbourne had created in an abandoned pub in Williamstown. It only lasted for an hour hour before the police came and kicked us all out, and although I returned there a few months later the whole place had been boarded up. For all I know all the art is still sitting in there, like some cave that will be discovered by future anthropologists or something and turned into a monument of early 21st century creativity. Or, at least I hope so."
