[Melbourne] Homecoming at No Vacancy
Usually scattered to four corners of the globe, Homecoming is the bringing together of three of Melbourne’s most prolific young creatives. The three bestest of friends and coolest dream team alive, Rick Mereki, Lee Gingold and Jason Mildren have once again returned to Melbourne after many years of travelling and working overseas. Independently, they span the fields of film, art, design, music and fashion and collectively they share a passion for art, music and random worldly experiences. These three guys are on my no.1 coolest cats of all times list.
No Vacancy has invited these artists to take over their space for a limited one-off show of photography and illustration. Homecoming is the first time an exchange between these friends has taken shape in the form of an exhibition and will form a unique look into the last few years of their individual and collective experiences. This is a one week only show, be sure not to miss it or them. Welcome home guys! So good to have you back!
When: Opening night with drinks and tunes Thursday February 11. Starts 6 pm. Show runs for one week only!
Lee Gingold lives, works and plays in London, Melbourne and New York. In the last year he has worked on film projects for The Beatles, David Bowie, and Louis Armstrong. When he is not writing a script or developing visuals for anticipated film and tv projects, you can find him in a random street taking photos of the things you thought you had lost forever.
When he isn’t directing music videos, DJ’ing or “making party”, Rick Mereki’s drawings of tiny villages on pieces of wood can be found everywhere from San Francisco to some of the finest share houses in Brunswick. Travelling the world with nothing but a sketchpad and a sexy beard, Homecoming will showcase the pretty little pictures he has done over the last six months in London, Spain, Morocco, Berlin, L.A and New York.
If not designing International, award winning art and fashion publication projects, eating mango’s or obsessing over film ideas and his music collection, Jason Mildren will be found roaming the streets, taking cheeky snaps of all things odd, intimate, beautiful, inspiring and bizarre. Recent adventures have seen him explore, live and work creatively in places such as London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Paris, Tokyo, Osaka, and Aotearoa .
