The Outpost Project @ Cockatoo Island 2011


When: November to December 2011
Where: Cockatoo Island, Sydney, NSW, Australia

Unlike any event I’ve ever been to, or what I could have imagined. The Outpost Project is a unique exhibition of urban art hosted on the ugly yet beautiful, Cockatoo Island in Sydney.

Cockatoo Island, is in fact an island that can be accessed by the public using Sydney Ferries or water taxis.

Practically the entire island was transformed to showcase all facets of urban art on a enormous scale.

Next by T-World consisted of 100s of t-shirts hung overhead from a variety of major and independent brands including Threadless and Johnny Cupcakes. While featuring along the ‘walls’ dozens of interviews with infamous t-shirt lovers and haters.

I had to see the art/cups up close which involved climbing up many stairs to get to the tennis court where these cups were housed.
