This August, we were proud to host Dance Like A Video, Sting Like A Gif by Australia’s own Numskull at 350 Broadway featuring six of his prints, some hand carved sculptures and video installations. Now he’s bringing his work back to Australia with a new show called Survival Tactics at the Tate Gallery. To celebrate the opening of the show, Мишка and Numskull have collaborated on a limited edition shirt that will be available on the night of the show.
Much of Numskull’s work is concerned with color, typography, heroism, and signage. While all f those aspects are present in his new work, Survival Tactics in specific, is a show about repetition and the artists ongoing struggle with advertisement and the internet. Think of when you’re trying to watch a pirated stream of Walking Dead and that popup keeps covering the stream advertising Phoenix University. Repetition, advertising, the internet. This show is relevant to your experiences but, you know, sophisticated and artful.
