Wednesday 6 August 2008

We are delighted to announce the launch of our Summer edition (late as usual) of The Rebel. We celebrate the third issue with a
whole magazine devoted to the number 4. We also proclaim a major new art competition the "Rebel Magazine Prize for Painting",
which could be the most valuable art award ever in history, with the winner receiving all the other work entered.

The Rebel launches simultaneously with the opening of Chris Tosic with text by Peter Suchin, the first of the 4 x 4 shows. On each
of the four Wednesday evenings in August you are invited to an opening by a different artist. Each artist has been given free reign
of the gallery and a prominent journalist or critic has written 444 words about them.

The Rebel published in a limited edition of 1000 includes:

  • Bob & Roberta Smith cover painting
  • 4 artists and 4 critics :
    1. Peter Suchin on Chris Tosic
    2. Jessica Lack on Marcus Freeman
    3. Rebecca Geldard on Anka Dabrowska
    4. John Hind on Martin McGinn
  • Robin Ince comedian and writer 4 Skins talks 4
  • 4 Steps to Heaven with Terry Edwards
