The Newtown ArtSeat presents art to the local community and gives artists and community groups a public space for the purpose of artistic outcomes.

The Newtown ArtSeat can be used for exhibitions, collaborative work, photography, multi-media or any other form of cultural expression.

Wendy Murray: Pulling posters from history

Pulling posters from history
By Wendy Murray

To 'pull' a screen print is the act of making, a physical action of expression. Despite the changes in image reproduction technology, the poster remains a significant and powerful medium for artists, activists and commercial entities to communicate to a mass, public audience.

The Newtown ArtSeat represents a socio-historical investigation into poster making in the Newtown area. Pulling posters from history celebrates the diversity and significance of Newtown, providing the ideal context to pay homage to poster makers, past and present.

Pulling posters from history encourages the community to engage with poster making and to share their stories.

During September–November 2017, I will continue to document local histories and research poster makers of the inner west.

Follow @pullyourpunches for poster makers, recollections and posters discoveries.
