frankie presents: locker room talk, an exhibition of rad aussie artists


Look forward to a rad exhibition in Melbourne, online events and the chance to chat to amazing local artists.

Two of our favourite Melbourne-based creatives Louise Brough and Kate Pullen have teamed up to curate Locker Room Talk, a special art space and exhibition that celebrates more than 30 ace Australian artists. We’re stoked to present the event, which will take place over at No Vacancy Gallery in Melbourne between August 9th–15th.

The agenda? Celebrating women, trans, and non-binary folk. And, elevating all the work that’s helping to flip negative ‘locker room talk’ on its head. Over 30 artists will take part, including Ashley Ronning, Ellen Porteus, Mariko Konno, Wanissa Somsuphangsri and frankie’s very own design whiz Casey Schuurman.

Melburnians will be able to pop by the free exhibition and connect with these top-notch artists. Plus, a whole host of online talks are popping up so creatives interstate and beyond can join in, too. The brain-tickling events include a Q&A with psycho-sexologist Chantelle Otten; a panel discussion exploring the wonderful, tricky and sometimes uncomfortable aspects of working in the creative industry; and a snazzy closing party. Word has it, our mates at Minor Figures will be there serving up espresso martinis. Yum!

Locker Room Talk is sponsored by the good people at Who Gives a Crap, Minor Figures, Wacom, Streamtime and Moody Incense.

Head to for tickets and to meet all the artists. See you there!
