Renew Newcastle's Festive Follies Walking Tour, Arthive will be hosting a special once-in-a-lifetime event. Fresh from Paste Modernism at Cockatoo Island, OX KING (aka Sydney artist Steven Nuttall aka Automaton) will be visiting to drop some mad paint skillz on one of our miserable looking walls in an incredible live art performance that you're invited to watch, critique, and enjoy.
OX has been making quite a name for himself in Sydney this year. Since his SPOOK HOUSE exhibition at ARThive in 2010, he has participated in art battles and live art performances all over the place, from Hardware Gallery, Lo Fi Gallery, Dirty Shirlows, to the Australian Museum!

From 2-4pm Renew Newcastle will host a walking tour starting at the Renew Church which will make its way through Arthive, Makespace, Shannon Hartigan, Birdhouse, Little Papercup, Run Amok, Odditorium, Tipsy Orchestra, and The Woods. It's a good chance to check out what's happening in each of the RN spaces in the mall and also meet the people behind them. There will be free food, drink, and entertainment along the way.
