Artist Profile: Paper Tigers

Including more than 200 posters, album covers and ephemera sourced from private and state collections and the National Art School archive, ‘Paper Tigers’ re-engages with Sydney’s ‘70s counter culture by focusing on the creative hub of Darlinghurst and its influence on music, art, theatre and politics. Curator Toby Creswell comments, ‘It was in Darlinghurst – out of the sight and mind of mainstream Australia – that a group of larrikins, mavericks, ratbags, poets, painters and musicians created a new vernacular.’
