Hit Me With Your Best Shot
Each artist who registers will be included in the ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’ exhibition at the Mining Exchange as well as online. This is a large scale installation of images from every artist in Australia. Our aim here is to reflect what is truly happening in Australian art today, creating an aerial sea of images. By registering your expression of interest you are agreeing to have one image selected for the ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’ project. No artists fee is offered for this exhibition.
A second chance to enter Hit Me With Your Best Shot will be released in September, 2017.
