A Thousand Shipwrecks - Maiden Voyage Launch

A Thousand Shipwrecks is a collective of 15 selected Melbourne artists ranging in various mediums were given two months to create a two page spread based on choosing a quote referencing a nautical theme, then were asked to create visual response to their chosen quote.

As part of the launch of this 42 page book there will be an exhibition of works featured in the book up for sale and live music provided by the band ITA, who are also featured in the book.

I really like to see when groups of like minded people in different genres come together to craete one big thing, such as this book. I don't know if I'll be able to make it to the launch but I 'am keen to check the book out at some point as shipwrecks and shipping in genral are a huge part of Australia's history and it would be interesting to see what modern creative twist is taken in this book by the artists.

The choosen 15 artists are:
• Felicity Young
• Tai Snaith
• Jesse Mallon and Peter Borg
• Jake Treacy and Hanna Tusler
• Something Splendid
• Jamie Boys
• Joel Rees
• Brigit Ryan
• Jordan Dolheguy
• Vaughan Mossop
• Velco Dojcinovski
• Sally Fowler
• Phillipa Grenda
• Wei Huang
