Space invaders: Australian. street. stencils. posters. zines. stickers.

9 April – 5 June 2011

A National Gallery of Australia Exhibition

Playful, edgy, clever and satirical, the works in Space invaders have appeared in city streets around Australia. Street art has significantly altered Australian visual culture, especially over the past decade. It has announced the arrival of a new generation of contemporary artists.

This exciting exhibition looks at street art of the past 10 years by more than 40 of the most prolific and infamous street artists working in Australia today. The works are from the National Gallery of Australia’s growing collection of street art—the only one of its kind in an Australian public gallery.
