Vivienne Cutbush (Hobart), Lucy Adelaide (Hobart)
and SPECIAL GUEST from Sydney Meg O’Shea, Ignatz award nominee 2018.

Each of these artists creates personal, thoughtful, occasionally heartbreaking, sometimes hilarious works for adults, skillfully manipulating the comics medium to create powerful, moving content. Their work addresses political themes, issues of identity, memory, and place, and range in form from comic journalism, to philosophy, fiction and biography.

9pm DJ Philistine makes her triumphant comeback!

This event is supported by Island magazine, San Kessto Publications, Read To Me, and 3/65, The Small Press Zine Fair will be on the following day from 1-5pm at the Battery Point Community Hall.

Follow Your Shadow moves between surface and source. Curated by Dr Sarah Jane Moore, Tasmanian artists Scott Baxter, Alyssa Bermudez, Grace Garton, Paula Hatton, Joshua Santospirito, Paul Peart-Smith, Vivien Mason and Sarah Jane Moore collaborate to create a magical place of mystery, animation, exaggeration and intuition. The shadows we cast are explored through object, sound and space where cartoon meets comic, graphics meet sculpture and holograms meet playful projections. From Marvel to Minions, comic and cartoon art is all around us and is increasingly being recognised as an art form with both high artistic value and the power to communicate diverse stories. Join us and follow your shadow.
