In an industry dominated by male influence, only the toughest, edgiest and most prolific female street artists have a voice. With the launch of new collaborative initiative, the Stayfly Sydney Block Party, all that is about to change.
A battalion of fierce female street artists are carving out a space for themselves – a movement within a movement – and they are set to launch their first strike on the street art boys’ club at an exhibition and party on Thursday 20 September at aMBUSH Gallery.
The exhibition will feature works by both local and international female artists, with particular focus on our Australian heroines including Ala Paredes, Alexandra Lederman, Gunnzel, Lady J, Rebecca Murphy, Zeke’s Lunchbox and many more.However, the Stayfly Sydney Block Party is more than just an art exhibition. The event is an all encompassing urban experience, headlined by female hip-hop artists Dawn Laird, Femecee, DJ LouLou, Ines, Mirrah Reflect and Shereene.
The Block Party marks the launch of a new community of passionate women who are defining the girls’ corner of the urban movement and exploring Sydney’s potential as a canvas for like-minded ladies.
Join aMBUSH Gallery on Friday 20 September from 5-9pm to welcome Stayfly to the Sydney scene. Complimentary Mountain Goat Beer and Alibi American Whiskey will be served on the night.
