Sticks & Stones Shitty House Tour No.1

In the count down to his Sydney anniversary pop up show, we thought it would be a good time to catch up with one of Australia’s most internationally renowned contemporary artists, Anthony Lister.

To mark the ten-year anniversary of NO WIN SWITCH, the show that further launched his global career where he went on to exhibit sell-out shows around the world, Lister will be presenting a new installation & pop up show, CULTURE IS OVER. Paying homage to the colourful culture of old school Kings Cross, CULTURE IS OVER will be presented once again at the old Porky’s site on the “red-light strip” & will kick off with a special opening night event on Wednesday next week (all show deets below).

For now, please enjoy our Sticks & Stones Shitty House Tour with Anthony Lister. & if you haven’t already seen his incredibly raw & honest Netflix documentary that will likely bring you to tears & make you feel a whole lot better about all the struggles you might have as a creative, WATCH IT! (trailer below).
