International Buy Nothing Day @ The Other Side!

International Buy Nothing Day @ The Other Side!

29th November is International Buy Nothing Day. A 24-Hour moratorium on shopping. Tied up so intimately with our outlook, lifestyle and eventual sustainability of our roots on the only planet we call home, it is a day to contemplate our consumer cultured landscape, a time to seek activities beyond malls and purchases.

Come join us in 2 FREE events at The Other Side Gallery! An exhibition with live art participation and a screening. Both are free admission and open to public.


AD-A-MANT – Series 1
26th Nov 08 – 30th Nov 08

AD-A-MANT examines the relation of advertisements in public areas and that of our mental environment. Are there innocuous or sublime elements we have taken for granted? And if you had a chance to change it, what would you do?

Inspired by self-encouragement scrawled on study tables and discoloured walls…this INTERACTIONAL exhibition invites you to come and alter the space as you would LIKE it. Be a part of the art.

Watch artists reclaim public spaces in front of you, in LIVE ART ! (only on Friday)


(documentary screening)
29th Nov 08

A refreshing take on consumerism, performance artist ‘Reverend Billy’ and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir goes on a cross-country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalypse (the end of humankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt.) The film also delves into issues such as the role sweatshops play in America’s mass consumerism and Big-Box Culture.
