Dean Sewell’s, ‘Culture Jammers’ at Museum of Sydney.
Arguably Australia’s best photojournalist still working within Australia and the region, Dean Sewell’s commitment, rarely recognised, has been rewarded with a solo exhibition at The Museum of Sydney. Culture Jammers documents the activities of a small group of culture jammers in Sydney between 2003 and 2007. The group – which comprised three to six people calling themselves ‘The Lonely Station’ after a line from a Midnight Oil song – were perhaps the city’s most audacious culture jammers. They scaled silos, highway billboards and buildings to rework images and draw public attention to social justice and environmental issues, including the Iraq War, woodchipping and the plight of refugees. Sewell and others from in and around the Culture Jamming movement will speak at The Museum on February 12 from 11 -1pm. For more info and tickets CLICK HERE.
