In 2000 I was involved in the exhibition Vernacular Spectacular at the Republic Hotel North Hobart with Craig Ball and Leonie. This occasion was probably the single event that produced the biggest variety of multiples I have made at any one time. The show was well thought out from our manifesto to opening night and included a variety of works that critiqued the new century and what it meant for Australians. Some of our targets were the Olympic Games, the Howard government, the republic debate, drug company marketing, sports hero marketing and communications marketing. This wide range of themes led to an interesting exhibition.
