MBAX Melbourne Body Art Xpo

Filed under: art, contemporary art, Fine Arts, General — site admin @ 6:22 pm

Body Art aficionados rejoice! The annual
non-profit MBAX Melbourne Body Art Xpo
is back for their 6th huge year in 2014 with
the theme “Out of the Ashes.”
Artists are invited to share their creative
visions by painting whatever associations
they make within the “Out Of The Ashes”
theme onto human canvases.

The 2014 Melbourne Body Art Xpo
Saturday 16th August at Revolt, 12
Elizabeth Street, Kensington, from 10am
to midnight.
Tickets for the public are on sale from
12 May at Revolt Art Space website from
www.revoltproductions.com
Entry:
$50 Family of 4
Single $30
Concession $25
Early Bird tickets $5 off
For more information please visit
www.mbac.net.au

It’s free to watch the artists work during the day time
and sponsor stalls will also be open for
business.
Competitors will have a maximum of six
hours to paint their models and this year’s
categories include airbrush, brush and
sponge, special effects and a novice and
fluorescent section.
Medals and certificates are presented
for all artists and trophies for victorious
participants as well as special prizes for best
model performance.
Like other grass roots forms of creative
expression such as cosplay, body
modification, tattoo art and street art, body
art is at the cutting edge of the cultural
revolution that has come from our people,
from our cities and from our sensibility
of the world today. And yet, its roots are
ancient.
Indigenous people the world over
have been decorating their bodies in ritual
and celebration since before recorded
history.

Founder and director Ria Clauss started
the inaugural showcase in Melbourne at
“The Spot” in Brunswick in April 2009.
After such an amazing response to the first
competition, in subsequent years it was held
at the Carlton Brewhouse in Abbotsford.
This year the event has morphed into the
Melbourne Body Art Xpo, hosted by the
underground venue Revolt in Kensington.
“I’ve changed it to an expo because it’s
become so huge and we’ll be having terrific
local live music this year, so we want people
to be able to move around a bit, dance,
socialise. We’re also extremely excited to
have performer, compere,
mistress of ceremonies
and social lubricator the
glamorous Philmah Bocks
hosting the expo!” Ria says.
Applications are now
open for both performers
and artists through the
website or by emailing -
