Rise and Fall is organising the inaugural INTERNATIONAL SKULL DRAWING COMPETITION to which there is a cash prize of $1000 USD. With humble beginnings (Rise and Fall is an experimental art space in a elevator lift!), this latest exercise invites both local and international artists to create what is top of mind – a skull! So design, illustrate, doodle, paint or stipple a bare-boned noggin and you could take home a thousand big ones. As well as being firmly entombed in skull design mythology, the competition winner will be skull crowned at the culminating exhibition/party in the elevator lift / stairwell / rooftop of Curtin House, Melbourne. Deadline: April 18, 2008, ISDC Entries close, 5pm. Exhibition: April 30, 2008. 6pm – 9pm – Lift / Stairwell / Rooftop. Curtin House, 252 Swanston St, Melbourne, VIC, Australia
