Opening of Anthony Lister’s exhibition “Sneaky Bit In”

Urban Spree Galerie presents “Sneaky Bit In“, a solo show by the Australian visual & street artist Anthony Lister. The Opening of the show will be on Friday, September 14th, 2018 in the presence of the artist.

Invited by Urban Spree as part of our Artist-in-Residence program, Lister spent 3 weeks at Urban Spree between August and September 2018 to create in situ a whole new body of large scale works, installations, media art, and a large mural.

For this residency project, Lister incorporated a large palette of references stemming from cubism, Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” and “Guernica“, Alejandro Jodorowski’s “The Holy Montain“, African masks, religion, divination and tarot, Aboriginal trans women, and direct references to Damien Hirst.

Lister’s outdoor mural at Urban Spree is a variation and alternate narrative on the theme of the main painting of the exhibition, in a style reminiscent of Egon Schiele and incorporating elements of Picasso’s Guernica. The wall was executed with a 6m long extension pole, and signed with a paint-filled fire extinguisher.

Anthony Lister (b. 1979 in Brisbane) is a contemporary Australian-born painter and installation artist, best known for his merging of “high” and “low” cultural imagery. Particularly well known as a street artist, Lister is considered amongst the best in the field with graffiti art legend Banksy even commenting that Lister appears to piss great art in his sleep.

He studied at the Griffith Queensland College of Art and was further educated under mentor Max Gimblett in New York City. Lister helped pioneer the street art movement in his home city as a teenager and is considered Australia’s premier street artist.

Lister employs multiple media including charcoal, acrylic, spray paint, oil pastels to create his scrawling, figurative style.

Lister has exhibited nationally and internationally including at the Lazarides Gallery in London, Underdogs Gallery in Lisbon, New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles, Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami, Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York, Olsen Gallery in Sydney, Black Art Projects in Melbourne, Fireworks Gallery in Brisbane, and Allouche Gallery in New York City.

Lister currently lives and works between Sydney and New York City.

Mr Woodnote & Andy V

Der Saxophonist, Komponist und Produzent Mr. Woodnote stammt aus Australien und lebt in Bristol. Zusammen mit Lil Rhys war er dort einer der berühmt-berüchtigsten Straßenmusiker. Seit einiger Zeit hat er aber laut Eigenaussage in Europas Fußgängerzonen ein polizeiliches Auftrittsverbot. Stattdessen entwickelte er seine Qualitäten als Loop-Artist weiter und gründete The Most Trio, in dem er zusammen mit dem Bassisten Jimvincible und dem Schlagzeuger Alex Lupo das Soundspektrum von HipHop, Rap, Jazz, Funk und Anverwandtem erheblich erweitert und auf drei Alben seine ungeheure musikalische Bandbreite unter Beweis gestellt. Am bekanntesten aber dürfte er durch seine Kollaborationen mit DubFX sein, auch wenn diese Beiträge nur einem kleinen Teil seines Spektrums repräsentieren.


Ebenfalls zusammen mit dem Loop-Künstler wurde Andy V bekannt. Als Sidekick begleitete er lange Zeit DubFX auf dessen Touren, bevor er selbst den Schritt als Solokünstler auf die Bühnen unternahm. Die Schwerpunkte des Australiers aus Melbourne liegen dabei mehr auf Reggae und Dub, die er ziemlich jazzig und überaus virtuos auf seiner Loop-Station verknüpft. Auch seine musikalische Einflussliste ist enorm lang und reicht von Fat Freddy’s Drop bis hin zu Herbie Hancock. Der Multiinstrumentalist hat im vergangenen Jahr seine EP „The Offering“ veröffentlicht.

Gemeinsam kommen Mr. Woodnote und Andy V im April zu uns auf Tour, um bei ihren Doppel-Headliner-Shows den Fans deutlich in die Beine zu fahren.

Xylouris White

After their sold out show last December in Berlin and a busy touring period worldwide, including their support acts for PJ Harvey’s Australian tour and festivals i.e. Big Ears Festival, Xylouris White return to Berlin for a unique performance at the Urban Spree Galerie.

Xylouris White brings together two masters of contemporary music: Jim White, a founder of the internationally acclaimed trio Dirty Three and Giorgos Xylouris (Psarogiorgis) the master lutenist who has been described as ‘the future of Cretan music’.

Xylouris is the descendant of Greek music royalty. His uncle is Nikos Xylouris, a national icon whose nickname is “archangel of Crete” because his songs are hugely influential and beloved, and his dad is Antonis Xylouris, a.k.a. Psarandonis, a singer and lyra player who is well-regarded for pushing traditional folk music in new directions.

White’s background, on the other hand, is decidedly post-punk; he co-founded the Dirty Three with Warren Ellis and Mick Turner in the early-’90s and went on to collaborate with Will Oldham, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, and many more. He’s a magnificent, multi-faceted, and sensitive drummer with the perfect mix of ferocity and finesse.

Together Xylouris White have created a new and compelling blend of melody and rhythm.

Jim and Psarogiorgis first played together in Melbourne. Since then they have been on a wonderful journey across three continents. Although these new experiences have added many riches neither has lost touch with the best of their diverse traditions.

All Your Sisters/ Ascetic:/ Philipp Strobel/ Luna Violenta

[aufnahme + wiedergabe] and Instruments of Discipline present:

All Your Sisters (USA)

“San Francisco duo All Your Sisters (Jordan Morrison/ /Mario Armando Ruiz) have one foot planted firmly in darkwave and post-punk, leaving the other free to wade through a variety of unconventional genres. The ease with which they shift between influences has yielded a sound that is both brooding and catchy. Their forthcoming album, Uncomfortable Skin is steeped in nostalgia, but entirely contemporary.” – Post-Punk.com

https://allyoursisters.bandcamp.com/

Ascetic: (AU/DE)

Ascetic is the post-punk project of Saxon Jörgensen, August Skipper and Andrew Jigalin from Melbourne, Australia, now located in Berlin, Germany. Second album ‘EVERYTHING IS BECOMING’ is the distillation of a slowly evolved sound stemming from the long writing collaboration between Jörgensen and Skipper, a carefully collated sonic vocabulary that along with the main instrumentation of guitar, bass, voice and electronic drums, includes found sounds, voice memos, field recordings, sampled synths and resampled guitars woven into the texture of the record, lyrics that embody a poetic restraint in exploring what it is to be human in a moment in history through both darkness and redemption.
