Re: Mad Max related exhibition at Campbelltown Arts Centre

The exhibition is not car related, but "art" related.
Shaun Gladwell is showing the cars as part of his art display.
He owns a MM2 replica, which he shipped all the way to Venice Italy last year for a world art festival.

You need maps to get around it and days of queuing to get any sense of what's on offer. The Venice Biennale is the oldest contemporary art fair in the world and it's on right now. This is the 53rd Biennale, an event supposed to capture the global artistic moment. But as well as being the oldest, there's another feature that distinguishes Venice from other biennales and triennals around the world. It's the only contemporary art event that has national pavilions, making it the artistic equivalent of the Olympic Games. The modern Olympic Games began in 1896 and the first Venice Biennale was held in 1895.
There are 77 countries exhibiting in the national pavilions this year. Australia has been showing at the biennale for the past 30 years. Artists have included Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd, Howard Arkley and Patricia Piccinini. This year, it's the Sydney based video artist Shaun Gladwell.
