Chips Mackinolty - 50 Not Out
Anyone who has seen our film GOING DOWN can't have missed the beautiful posters which were used as the visuals for the opening title sequence. They came out of the legendary "Tin Sheds" print works at Sydney Uni. The group who worked there and in particular Chips Mackinolty were political, funny and iconoclastic. They were able to respond so quickly to a political situation that posters would be up all round Sydney within twenty four hours of some outrage or political development. Well known gallerist Damien Minto holds Sunday Arvo salons where he makes artwork available for two hours. Last Sunday he had a retrospective of Chips' work as part of the sedition festival. It was well attended by Sydney's inner city arts pensioners. See if you can spot Gill Leahy, Andy Neil, Toby Cresswell, Richard Tipping, John Corker, Jan Mackay, Mark Mordue and lead singer of the 80s punk bank The Craven Fops, James Scanlon.
We made a little video report of the expo. Going Down is available here: https://www.smartstreetfilms.com.au/catalogue/going-down
