Offically running for 10 working days is one of my favourite exhibition so far, Wear Art Thou at No Vacancy. Its sponsored by Red bubble (Click here for pictures of the opening night) who collaborated with Illustrators Australia to create a unique exhibition of Arty Shirts! First of all, hello again to the peeps I met during the opening and apologies if I startled you…I just get very excited about meeting new artists and art lovers *pokes fingers together*
Look at the girls enjoying their tea on American Apparel
As mentioned on the flyer, it was an exhibition with shirts as the canvas but that wasn’t all. Red Bubble also exhibited the art on other merchandise such as metal sheets, canvas, totes, smart phone covers and pillow cases. I reckon that the best part of the whole exhibition is that you can touch and feel the art. Here is Peek-a-knit on a pillow case, I was really shocked to see it there as it wasn’t part of my submission.
Give me some sugar <3
gaHHHH!!!! we need to escape from this pillow!
*suggestion: you can get some marker pens and colour the girls in.
The layout of the entire exhibition was extremely creative in using No Vacancy’s massive cavern space. Red bubble also provided some laptops so that the public can shop the art.

So…If you are stuck on what to do this Sunday in Melbourne, here is my itinerary for you:
- Have a quick African coffee break at Plantation
- head to No Vacancy to see the art and maybe own some ;) ( it ends at 5pm)
- Practise your Spanish at the Mexican Festival on Fed square
- End with some kitty cuddles at the cat cafe on Queen st/opps Vic market. I’m not choosing sides but have you seen how cool cats are with the viral bicycle riding cat or the mountain climbing cat??? Just saying~
