Shocking Melbourne

Damien Lawlor.


Damien Lawlor was the comedian, broadcaster, writer and creative weirdo behind 3RRR’s dark sketch show Lime Champions. He’s also been responsible for a number of irresponsible festival shows, including the psychedelic comedy horror of The Hugh Jackman Diaries, the absurdistopian sci-fi comedy Low Status Update, and has in recent years applied his total lack of animation skills to create works that can’t be unseen. He now brings his twisted sensibility to the art world.

Shocking Melbourne is an exhibition that will blow minds, spin heads and turn tummies. Forget the Museum of Old and New Art, this is art made by Melbourne's biggest Controversial Underground New Talents. Featuring original works from the painters, illustrators, animators and video artists that are so subversive they refuse to exist.

Exhibition: Wed 28 March - Sun 8 April.
