Cans Festival Part 3

Well the Cans Festival is over now and the installs are supposed to be in the process of being removed as I type. The graffiti on the walls in the tunnel may yet last another six months or six hours. Who knows, certainly not me.

Well done to the organisers for putting on such a first class show. It must have cost a small fortune to get the tunnel cleaned up, the exhibits moved in, hire all the staff and do all the paperwork and insurance and whatever else there is to do with organising such a large event. Luckily for us we just turn up and walk around for free. Which is nice.

So much good work to see, apart from the obvious contenders I especially liked the Vhils face sculptures and the madness that was the free for all wall area.

If you didn’t get down there heres some flicks of what you missed. I’ll be adding a full review of the cans festival to artofthestate shortly.
