Commit No Nuisance event at La De Da-the short of it

image

Tonight we Humans of the Brochure were invited to come and see 2 teams of 3 artists go head to head in a live Commit No Nuisance art battle.

Each team was presented with a massive blank canvas that over the course of about 90 minutes, they filled.

image

This was a fascinating process as the teams had only met that night and had little time to pull together their creative genius.

image

Watching the magic evolve live and artists fill the canvas with colour and meaning was a real experience.

While the artists were creating their magic…

…..we were fed well by La De Da

Drinks were plentiful!

My mocktail was spot-on. I did not feel like I was missing out at all.

As the art was unfolding, we were also entertained by beat-boxer Keeegz…

……heard some energetic raps by hiphop artists Jemist and Ender III

and mellowed out to the hypnotic sound of Toggle.

La De Da, a cocktail bar and function room, is above Haha Bar in Belconnen. Its furniture has been created by local designer Tom Skeehan and the art on the walls is by New Zealand’s Erin Forsyth.

The vision of each team was emerging….

The evening had a fantastic vibe!

My last glimpse of the art as I left. I forgot to mention that the winning team is decided by the audience. Each audience member had a token that they tossed into the bucket of their preferred team.

I was not able to stay to see who won, but I heard that the team that used mostly black and white came through with the goods this time. I never knew art battles like this existed! What a great idea!
