EXTRA!EXTRA!

Lucas Ihlein

$5,000.00

EXTRA!EXTRA! was a project originally commissioned by Kaldor Public Art Projects. Working with the Rizzeria Collective and a sprawling team of collaborator artists including printmakers, designers, live artists and journalists, the project involved the weekly production of a newspaper in-situ at AGNSW for five weeks in Nov-Dec 2019. Artist journalists worked onsite, creating articles and artworks for the paper, which was designed and printed live in the gallery, with pages accumulating each week posted on the wall. Visitors contributed letters to the editor which were incorporated in next week's paper. This was a work of public social engagement which was fun and also critical, tackling themes from within the Kaldor 'Making Art Public' program, including environmentalism and climate change, live art histories, artists' working conditions, gender, and the state of journalism today. For this iteration of the project the final pages of the paper are exhibited. Pop into the gallery to pick up a free offset printed edition. More information about the project can be found at www.extra-extra.press. EXTRA!EXTRA! is one of 51 works selected as finalists in the 2021 Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award. Printed by Alisa Croft from The Rizzeria and Pinch Press (risographic), plus commercial offset.
