After 18 months of online performances during COVID, Richard expected to bring his digital shows to life. But with Melbourne’s extended lockdown, he will be back behind the camera! An on-screen QR code lets you control the song list and some unique interactions. Every show will be a totally unique experience.

His original songs draw from the moments we all experience; wasting hours on the phone to call centres, accidentally telling an inappropriate joke at the office, family dramas at Christmas… You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll want to see the show more than once. And his Sunday show is kid-friendly!

In response to COVID lockdowns in regional Victoria, Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery is proud to present the online presentation of The Artist and the Mermaid, a new artwork by Catherine Bell, presented as part of exhibition Video Now in partnership with NETS Victoria.

The Artist and The Mermaid (2020) is a silent film that documents the shared artist residency undertaken by “The Two Cathies” at Venus Bay 2020. Cathy Staughton and Catherine Bell are artist collaborators and have been each other’s muse since 2009 when they met at Arts

Project Australia. The silent film genre has been selected because for a brief time in history, it provided an inclusive experience for the hearing impaired who could fully participate in this popular cultural form as equal members of the audience. This silent film is both a documentary and performance artwork. It documents Cathy painting a series of nude portraits of Catherine Bell, while she performs the role of a mermaid that Cathy Staughton discovers on the beach.

Director of NETS Victoria, Claire Watson says: “NETS Victoria is excited to work with Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery to present Catherine Bell’s The Artist and the Mermaid online. Until audiences can once again visit the gallery in person, everyone with a screen and Wi-Fi can enjoy a part of the exhibition Video Now from home.” Catherine Bell says: “The film and portraits explore the ageing female body and bodily difference through this mythological character. The seaside is a site where negative body image is often experienced, so selecting the beach setting and mermaid guise aims to promote positive images of older women and dispel negative stereotypes of ageing. Mermaids are usually depicted as young women and their transition from sea to land involves surrendering their unique anatomy. Cathy’s acceptance of her mermaid friend’s bodily difference subverts this traditional narrative, and through their creative exchange, promotes body positivity, interdependence and empowerment.”

Directed by Bronwen Coleman (The Actors Studio, NYC), DIRT is a thrilling and seductive exploration of sexuality, solidarity and persecution that won four awards at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and earned a dozen five-star reviews.

Traversing the compelling course of one night, DIRT presents as a simple meet cute – but all is not as it seems. When a Russian and an Australian walk into a bar in modern-day Moscow, they decide to drink and party together – but both need something from the other, and both have something to hide.

“Wil and I had talked a lot about queer persecution across the Russian Federation and were aware that not many people in Australia knew what was happening.”, explains Actor/Producer Patrick Livesey.

“During last year’s lockdown we decided to commission Angus Cameron to write a play to spread awareness and also to raise money through ticket sales for LGBTQIA+ organisations in Russia. DIRT is a thriller that really plays with the audience’s perception of what is real and what is not. We wanted the tone of the work to emulate the experience of being persecuted, of having to be on guard constantly. It’s hard to bring thrillers and live theatre together, but we feel we’ve achieved that here.”

Emerging into the world with singles ‘Aphrodite’, ‘Wild Ride’, and ‘Heartbreaker’ – and now a 14-track album – the Melbourne-based singer-songwriter has carved a niche for herself in the realm of dream pop with ethereal electronica beats and pulsing piano rhythms.

While reminiscent of ’90s legends Mazzy Star and The Cure, Bardini’s cultivation of art keeps her firmly planted in the garden of the present.

The album was conceived from a dream the 21-year-old artist had featuring meteor showers that doused her in heat and caused her ears to ring.

The vivid, apocalyptic experience awakened her to the existential ideas that influences her songs.

It’s a theme that investigates the identity of self-predominately, yet he is drawn to the concept of identity in others. He uses mark making and pattern forming to express these ideas of identity. There’s an intention to use colours and associations to commit ideas to address this expression. The process of identity can be creative or destructive, yet his purpose is to be creative, using known concepts and mixing them with unique attributes to form positive outcomes.

 

Dave is influenced by ancient cultures, science fiction and popular culture and how these influences use ideas and elements to be identifiable. He has undertaken a journey of self-discovery through his art practice and from that journey, comes the expression of the energy of colour and movement in the form of his art. The intention is to draw the viewer in to explore my works and to interpret as they view it.

Dave has exhibited in Australia and the United States. His work is in private collections in Australia, New Zealand, The UK, Hong Kong, Malaysia and the United States and in corporate collections in Brisbane, Australia.

Filip Vukaŝin emerges as a major new talent in contemporary
Australian fiction with Modern Marriage, a compelling
domestic drama that will be loved by fans of Liane Moriarty
and Christos Tsiolkas.
Vukaŝin, now a GP, draws from his background working
in cosmetic medicine to weave a page-turning narrative
that scratches away the glossy veneer of what looks like
perfection.
Modern Marriage is informed by Vukaŝin’s personal
experiences as a gay man, and is set against the backdrop of
the turbulent 2017 same-sex marriage plebiscite.
The seeds of the novel were sown when Vukaŝin heard a
male patient had died while in a gay sauna. ‘It led me to
wonder what a sudden tragedy like that would do to the
family members left behind, particularly if he was there
secretly,’ he said.
The story
The novel follows Klara, whose life appears to be perfect –
from her boutique cosmetic clinic to her svelte physique, and
from her modern home in Melbourne’s coveted inner east to
Dante, her adoring husband with movie-star good looks. And
if all goes to plan, she and Dante will soon have a perfect
baby too.
Then one phone call shatters it all: Dante’s in a coma, after
being discovered unconscious in a gay sauna. Suddenly
Klara’s perfect life begins to spiral dangerously out of control
as her husband’s secrets disrupt everything she thought she
knew about love, marriage and family.

A two-hander following an ordinary couple simply trying to survive their relationship, What rhymes with orange?
is the latest work by multi-disciplinary artist Isabella Perversi. Running as a part of Melbourne’s vibrant 2021
Fringe Festival, this premiere season asks; “What happens to a relationship when it is held together not only by
love, but also by secrets, shame, and guilt?”
An engaging mix of natural and the surreal, What rhymes with orange? is the tale of Tom and Rosie; a regular
couple evolving into the next phase of their lives together. Navigating the rocky terrain of a whether a much loved
career should take precedence over dreams of a family, the young couple are faced with challenging situations
and provocative choices that could either make or break them.

Exploring the illusion of fame versus reality, life and death, and the ability to be reborn, What rhymes with or-
ange? also scrutinises the impact of all consuming modern day technology on a relationship.

“I was curious about what was end of the line for a relationship and when people understood it was time to call it
quits. I really wanted to unpack that.”, explains writer/performer Isabella Perversi.

“What rhymes with orange? is an intense look into the lives of these two people with all the love, hate and pas-
sion one can expect – but what lies underneath all of this is the deceit, shame and regret. One of my favourite lines

in the play is “I’m just waiting for my life to start”, which I think is pretty relevant in todays climate as we navigate
lockdowns and things being postponed and cancelled all the time. There’s a perpetual feeling of unease and
waiting inherent in the work that I think will resonate with audiences.”
Nominated for a Green Room Award for Performance (2021) and Best in Theatre at the 2020 Melbourne Fringe

Festival for her debut play EMBER, Isabella Perversi now brings audiences What rhymes with orange? – her inti-
mate new work about modern love and sacrifice, set amongst the seeming randomness of life.

“Riveting writing, direction and performance” – Sometimes Melbourne (EMBER)
“Perversi’s performance is nuanced and multi-faceted” – Independent Review (EMBER)

and provocative choices that could either make or break them.
Exploring the illusion of fame versus reality, life and death, and the ability to be reborn, What rhymes with or-
ange? also scrutinises the impact of all consuming modern day technology on a relationship.
“I was curious about what was end of the line for a relationship and when people understood it was time to call it
quits. I really wanted to unpack that.”, explains writer/performer Isabella Perversi.
“What rhymes with orange? is an intense look into the lives of these two people with all the love, hate and pas-
sion one can expect – but what lies underneath all of this is the deceit, shame and regret. One of my favourite lines
in the play is “I’m just waiting for my life to start”, which I think is pretty relevant in todays climate as we navigate
lockdowns and things being postponed and cancelled all the time. There’s a perpetual feeling of unease and
waiting inherent in the work that I think will resonate with audiences.”
Nominated for a Green Room Award for Performance (2021) and Best in Theatre at the 2020 Melbourne Fringe
Festival for her debut play EMBER, Isabella Perversi now brings audiences What rhymes with orange? – her inti-
mate new work about modern love and sacrifice, set amongst the seeming randomness of life.
“Riveting writing, direction and performance” – Sometimes Melbourne (EMBER)
“Perversi’s performance is nuanced and multi-faceted” – Independent Review (EMBER)

Thrills & Spills: Sisters in Crime’s 21st Davitt Awards Winners Announced
Sally Hepworth’s domestic thriller, The Good Sister (Pan Macmillan Australia) won Sisters in Crime’s 21st Davitt Award (Best Adult Novel) on Saturday night (28 August). The annual awards for best women’s crime books were presented online for the second year running. Fans were invited to go to Facebook to watch the ceremony.
Hepworth, based in Melbourne, is the New York Times bestselling author of six novels. Her 2019 book, Mother in Law, has been optioned for a TV series by Hollywood actress and producer, Amy Poehler.
“If I’m perfectly honest,” she said, “it’s still a surprise to me that I write crime. I always start out with a happy, uplifting premise, and before I know it, I’m Googling the best instruments with which to bludgeon someone to death. I blame my teenage fixation with Law and Order SVU. That said, I like to think that there is a market for happy uplifting books that include a little bludgeoning – I may be wrong, but this is my line and I’m sticking to it.”
The Davitt Awards were presented by Debra Oswald, the award-winning playwright, screenwriter, and novelist, and hosted by Tara Mitchell, Sisters in Crime’s Vice-President. Before presenting the awards, Oswald was quizzed on her brilliant career and her latest book, The Family Doctor, an explosive novel about domestic violence.
“Last year our plans for a big gala dinner for our 20th anniversary were scuppered by the pandemic and this year it’s been the same,” Mitchell said.
“The one silver lining is that thanks to the miracles of modern technology, the Davitts now reach a global audience. Our lists now include crime fans from New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia, South Africa, Canada, the USA, the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and Russia.”

All his life, award-winning journalist and author Andrew Rule has watched the heroes and villains of racing: dreamers and schemers, winners and losers, horses and riders. This love led to him writing his newest book Chance which will be published on 31st August.
Chance is an  insider’s account of the characters, triumphs and scandals that have propagated the grand spectacle of Australian horse racing. Here are stories of those who set the odds and those who take them, of miraculous wins, ‘plunges’ planned more carefully than bank robberies, of tricky trainers, reckless jockeys and bold bookmaking dynasties. From the master farrier who fixes a lame horse’s feet and lands a fortune, to the broke punter who turns loose change into the price of a house in a few crowded hours, to the tycoon who takes down the Waterhouses for a million bucks.
Rule has written, edited or published more than 30 true crime books – including the best-selling Underbelly series with John ‘Sly’ Silvester, which inspired the television drama on Melbourne’s gangland war. He and Silvester ghosted the Chopper books that led to the acclaimed feature film starring Eric Bana. He is now an associate editor of Australia’s biggest daily newspaper, the Herald Sun, for which he writes features and columns. He wrote the definitive biography of businessman Kerry Stokes, published in 2015, and the award-winning biography of the

LEARN MORE Contemporary jewellery exhibition by 11 Victorian First Nations Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander artists and designers participating in the first year of the Koorie Heritage Trust’s
inaugural Blak Design program.
Blak Design is a ground-breaking four-year program presented by the KHT to foster First
Nations cultural innovation within the Victorian design sector and provide a platform for
nurturing sustainable, First Nations design practices.
Blak Jewellery – Finding Past, Linking Present opens Saturday 4 September until
Sunday14 November 2021 at the Koorie Heritage Trust, Yarra Building, Fed Square.
Participating First Nations artists:  Ange Jeffery (Wiradjuri), Aunty Beverley Meldrum (Wirangu,
Kokatha), Cassie Leatham (Taungurung), Hollie Johnson (Gunaikurnai, Monero Ngarigo),
Isobel Morphy-Walsh (Taun Wurrung), Jenna Lee (Larrakia, Wardaman and Karajarri), Kait
James (Wadawurrung), Lisa Waup (Gunditjmara and Torres Strait Islander), Sandy Hodge
(Lardil), Sharn Geary (Bundjalung) and Aunty Suzanne Connelly (Wiradjuri).
Each of the participants have undertaken intensive hands-on workshops; learning and refining
their jewellery making skills at RMIT jewellery studios under the guidance of jewellers Blanche
Tilden and Laura Deakin. They have also participated in professional development workshops
with creative industry leaders in business, design and marketing.
Each are presenting a beautiful range of contemporary jewellery anchored by their connection
to culture, Country and family.
‘’What I love most about the program is how we’ve all learnt the same incredible skills using
different materials, then used them to turn our stories into jewellery and wearable art that is so
different from each other’, says Kait James. ‘My work has been based around my love of
sheoaks or ngarri in Wadawurrung, and the connections to my ancestors. Using different
material to look at form and movement but also combining my love of colour to create various
different pendants and necklaces.’’
For Hollie Johnson, ‘’the Blak Design program has opened my eyes up to a whole new world
that I had only scratched the surface of. I have gained an immense appreciation for this fine art,
along with meeting and working with some amazing people from across many artistic
disciplines. I am so grateful for this opportunity, as the people and this experience is something
special that I will always carry with me. The pieces I have created from this program carry
connection to Country. Combining both flora and fauna of what connects myself to Family and
Place, that of which we have held dear to our hearts for many generations. As these are just
some of the many aspects that First Nations People always carry with them.’’
‘’It’s been an honour to be part of the Blak Design program’’, says Ange Jeffery. ‘’The program
provided me with the opportunity to work alongside talented peers and amazing First Nation
Artists, and many generous mentors.

sentiment of life affected by Covid times, dreams on hold, and staying apart so that
one day people can be together again.
“Waiting for Abbey Road is one of my most significant songs written. When I
wrote it, I felt that we would look back at this time in our lives as an historic
time, a time that needed to be documented and remembered. I wanted to
write that history in a song. I also hope that it will help people to see some of
the positives of the pandemic and gain some inspiration from stories of
humanity.”
Ruth Picker
“Thanks so much to The Song Tailors for asking me to feature in Waiting for
Abbey Road. I loved working on this song, and even though I had to do it from
home (instead of in London), it was still very much enjoyable. I hope everyone
loves this song as much as I do!”

(APRA AMCOS Registration No. GW61911019)
I wanted to write a piece to celebrate the opening of the new Victorian Pride Centre.
Such a stunning building, a monumental achievement, and an architectural triumph,
after years of hard work. It is a world exemplar and a credit to all involved.
I wanted to write something tracking the journey of the last 50 or so years to where we
are now. Until 1980 sex between consenting adult males in Victoria was illegal.
People were arrested, imprisoned and carried criminal convictions for loving who they
loved. State and Church treated us as second class citizens. Self-righteous violence in
the community bullied, raped, bashed and murdered our people.
For those of us who realised our identity 50 and 60 years ago the journey was perilous.
Families rejected us, Church and State considered us evil or ill or criminal. Yet, we
somehow found each other. We gathered in hidden places to dance and be together.
Places constantly subject to police raids and arrests. We lived in ghettos because we
didn’t know what else to do. There were no safe places.
Times have changed, but not for everyone. There are still young people subject to
Church and family intolerance. Aversion therapy is still practised, causing lasting
damage, including depression, mental illness and suicide. It makes people hate
themselves, but it doesn’t stop them being gender diverse.
The Pride Centre is a glorious incarnation of acceptance and equality for gender
diverse peoples. My composition tracks a person’s initial realisation that they are
different, their tentative moves to be themselves, the hostile reactions encountered,
their self-doubt and self-deprecation. Then the ferocity of societal denial and violence
follows. But – there’s a beginning fightback, a beginning of hope for ourselves, that
strengthens and builds so that we came to stand proud in defiance, and the community
began to believe we weren’t monsters at all, but decent human beings, and the voices
of repression muted themselves.

Over 100 circus artists delve into the next unbelievable
As part of the Circus Oz experiment, the Circus Arts Incubator Fellowship program introduces five circus creatives committed to uncovering the next Australian circus arts provocation.
Each receiving a $40K stipend over a six-month period, the Fellows represent a powerful force of diversity that covers First Nations, disability, queer, social politics and wickedly humorous approaches to inclusion.
Harley Mann, a Wakka Wakka man from Queensland, grew up on Gadigal country. Mann is interested in the value of land and how it holds memory and the relationships to country. His driving ambition is to establish a First Nations physical movement and circus company.
Award-winning Jarred Dewy hails from in Adelaide. He is a National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) graduate and spent nine years as part of the Circa ensemble. Jarred’s fellowship will focus on the identity of all things queer, raw, subversive and surreal through a hybrid of acrobatics and drag.
Acclaimed mid-career artist, Jess Love will focus on stories told through beautiful images and physical feats. Love wants to challenge the status quo on gender, sexuality and lifestyle. She explains, “I want to make work for children that teaches them that difference is exciting and cool.”
Mitch Jones is a physical performer with over a decade of creating thought-provoking and playful shows that experiment with genre and style. He wants to take audiences on a wild ride through the absurd, darkly comical and visually surreal.
As an adventurous street performer, Roya the Destroya shocks and disrupts strangers into a soulful and joyful exchange. With global experiences, she has busked in the Middle East and performed at the White House. Roya’s fellowship will focus on representation for disability artists and audiences.
The five Fellows will join over 100 other circus performers selected to be part of the Circus Arts Incubator Associate program to take-over and activate many spaces throughout the enormous Circus Oz headquarters within the Collingwood Yards precinct.
Circus Oz Executive Director, Penny Miles, explained that these new Circus Oz Arts Incubator programs attracted over 80 applications covering over 200 artists, “This is a major turning point. It’s a new era to support a broader range of circus arts. We cannot wait to witness what they discover.”
“We’ve striped back our entire building to give artists access to spaces and resources to research, test and create new possibilities. They will have access to over 2,000 square metres of space (approximately half an acre) – this includes two large rehearsal rooms as well as a range of new studio spaces we’ve transformed from existing offices,” said Miles.
Circus lovers can access a special Sneak Peek pass to see exclusive scheduled and last-minute viewings as well as time to meet and engage with the Circus Arts Incubator Fellows and Associates.
Circus Oz will launch the $80 Sneak Peek pass soon. It will cover eight months (October 2021 to May 2022) of varied moments that test new circus experiments before they hit the main stage.

industrious and creative minds, both independent, yet both committed
to engaging with community. Our curatorial challenge was to engage the
sculptures and the Gardens in a dialogue that was mutually respectful and
one that acknowledged each other’s achievements.
The achievements of the sculptors exhibited demonstrate, without
question, a remarkable inventiveness. The masterful manipulation of their
chosen materials shouts with the joy of aesthetic enquiry and the triumph
of hard labour. And the Gardens describe a parallel accomplishment.
A walk through this productive yet peaceful oasis reveals its variety, and
the wonder of its design traces the pleasure and industry of those who have
made it what it is today.
In seeing the two together the visitor is offered the opportunity to witness
a very special encounter. One in which we can participate; one where we
are invited to observe; one to which we can listen; one from which we can
learn.
The sculptors here represented are known, or are bound to be known,
as great practitioners in their field. In an age where utility is champion,
their unstated responsibility is to inspire other sculptors and students of
sculpture to develop their practice. So too do the Gardens, widely known
as being a benchmark for what can be saved from the appetite of urban
developers, show us a Garden for future community gardeners to aspire to.
BIG Sculpture has come to the heart of St Kilda. In the heart is The Garden.

LEARN MORE Driven by silent comedy and theatrical circus, this ambitious Australian premiere season is a peculiar reflection of the creative process as an academic navigates writers block, procrastination, and perfectionism, while writing their hallowed thesis.
“After the completion of my third degree (a Bachelor of Circus Arts), I graduated into a pandemic.”, explains writer/performer Ciara Thorburn. “So, I decided to con my way into my ninth year of study – rather than writing my thesis I wrote a show – about writing a show, about writing a thesis, during a pandemic.
Through Expression Australia, the Sustaining Creative Workersprogram also made me keenly aware of the need for more accessibility within the arts once theatres were able to open our doors again. I created the work with that at the fore. The most enjoyable thing about the show is that most nights I don’t know what’s going to happen. The performance is rooted in moments of improvisation and my ability to react to what’s going on with any given audience. My work doesn’t really fit into any boxes. If I had to label it, I’d call it ‘Cult Clown Cinema’.”
A progressive and creative mid-career Melbourne-based circus artist, Ciara Thorburn is a graduate of Australia’s National Institute of Circus Arts. She has also trained under theatre master Philippe Gaulier and toured extensively throughout Australia, Europe, New Zealand and Japan. Her various show credits include Shuffle Club Royale, Circus Rio, Wonderland Spiegeltent, Awaji Art Circus in Japan, Edinburgh Fringe’s Late Night Lip Service and Cheeky Cabaretat the Brunswick Picture House.
Embracing the mundane and making it remarkable, The Thesis is a subtle yet intelligent exploration of the human condition; both inspiring… and incredibly frustrating.

LEARN MORE















In welcome news for Australian art and architecture lovers, RISING has announced that the season for A Miracle Constantly Repeated, leading visual artist Patricia Piccinini’s immersive takeover of the long-shuttered and mysterious ballroom and upper level of Flinders Street Station, will be extended to 16 January, 2022.
Presented in partnership with the State Government and City of Melbourne, the extension will give audiences more opportunities to glimpse inside the fabled spaces of Australia’s oldest and most recognisable train station as they explore Piccinini’s first hometown exhibition in more than two decades.
“In an era marked by cancellations, shortened seasons and sudden ends, we are so delighted by the degree to which audiences have embraced this stunning exhibition by one of Australia’s foremost artists,” says RISING co-artistic director Hannah Fox. “That we are able to extend the season for A Miracle Constantly Repeated, ensuring more people get to experience this incredible space, while continuing to draw visitors back to the CBD as the city continues to recover and rebuild, is all the more gratifying”.
Despite lockdown measures pausing operations, A Miracle Constantly Repeated has continued to see sell-out sessions, and since its opening with the launch of RISING in May, has been experienced by close to 20,000 visitors.
The once in a generation art event marks the first time Flinders Street Station’s famed ballroom and surrounding rooms have been open to the public in over 30 years. The 10 rooms on display were once home to dances, library books, night classes, a nursery, billiards room and offices, and have been transformed into an immersive world that celebrates and showcases the historic space. Responding to the station as an organic environment, which her creatures have fled to or sprung from, Piccinini has left the spaces within the upper level virtually untouched, allowing the peeling paint and left-behind filing cabinets to take on a symbiotic relationship with the works.
As visitors move through the space, they can access a personal tour from Patricia Piccinini herself — through an audio guide, direct from the artist’s mouth and accessible via QR codes throughout the exhibition.

Meszaros... LEARN MORE








Boroondara Arts will be celebrating the 50-year career of local Boroondara sculptor Michael Meszaros with a commemorative exhibition at the Town Hall Gallery, from 3 August – 25 September. Meszaros has produced a number of well-known public works throughout Melbourne, Australia and internationally. Working primarily in bronze, fabricated copper and stainless steel, his work includes relief sculptures, exhibition sculptures, portraits, and his particular speciality, medals.

50 Years as a Sculptor by Michael Meszaros features a collection of Meszaros’ commissioned medals created for prizes, awards, centenaries, and unveilings, as well as more personal works and portraits created for both private and institutional clients.
Meszaros began making portrait medals, working with his father, in the last 1950s. In 1967 he completed a Bachelor of Architecture and went on to work as an architect. Since 1970 to now he has been practising as a full-time sculptor, producing 39 major works, many reliefs, plaques, memorials, trophies, exhibition and garden works, as well as over 600 medals.
 
Meszaros’ medals have won a number of international awards and are held in national collections in England, Europe and the USA. He has received a range of local prizes for his sculptural works. In 2012 he received an Order of Australia Medal – for contributions to the Visual Arts as a sculptor. In 2014 he won Inaugural American medal of the Year, and in 2019 he won the Equal People’s Choice award, Deakin Small Sculpture Prize.
Meszaros explains: “The origin of the modern art medal can be traced back to the coins of ancient Greece, with portraits and symbolic designs representing rulers and cities. Today, medal art has become much broader, often breaking out of the traditional circle and using a variety of materials, techniques and subject matter.”
The Town Hall Gallery exhibition will include newly commissioned works, exhibition medals and a video of major public works to commemorate five decades of Meszaros’ work.
 
“I am excited to present an exhibition that represents over 50 years of my career as a full time sculptor. I have lived or worked in Boroondara all my life and am thrilled to have a solo show at my local gallery after all these years” says Meszaros.

LEARN MORE Moira Finucane is emerging from the ashes of a pandemic year gone by and rising into the flames of a winter season of theatrical and performance wildness.
From the tail end of July and throughout the month of August, Finucane & Smith and their band of exquisites return to the stage with five synesthetically exhilarating shows that will capture the hearts of those who have missed them so dearly.
“Four lockdowns, a bin fire of a year, and the unique joy of cancelling a year and a half’s work in one day over a cup of whisky. What could we do but Phoenix-pivot?! But the day I recycled gold shoes off the footpath I knew it was a sign; we’d rise from the ashes, taller, brighter and undimmed. And we are striding back; in fact we cannot be stopped. Live, digital, virtual, visceral – tune in, turn up, I’ve missed you all like the fires miss the air, like the whales miss the water and like the penguins miss their krill,” Finucane said.
Rapture: Bathtub Edition – 22 & 29 July and 5 August
Fresh from being beamed live to the Copenhagen International Stage Festival and streamed live from the depths of her bathtub comes Rapture: Bathtub Edition. For three showings only on 22 & 29 July and 5 August, this lockdown-created work is an intimate, epic, surreal fever dream of Art vs Extinction. With genius composer Rachel Lewindon on piano and Theremin, audiences will submerge in a stunning scape of penguins, demons, angels, hope, extinction, propaganda and ice.
Commissioned by Mesto Žensk (Slovenia), Climakaze Miami and Take Over! (Arts Centre Melbourne/Melbourne Fringe), written in Paris museums and on Antarctic icebergs, with seasons from China to Prague, and winner of the Climakaze Award for Outstanding Work on Climate Justice, this visceral performance is the next r/evolution in Finucane’s globally acclaimed Art vs Extinction suite.
As part of the Art vs Extinction suite, from 22 August – 5 September Finucane is also co-curating Denmark’s first Women in Climate art residency at BIRCA Bækkelund International Residency Center for Artists with 12 artists from around the world (Greenland, Australia, USA, Norway, Mexico, Sweden, Korea, Vietnam). This residency is an exploration into some of the most urgent issues of our time where art, climate, hope, despair, poetry and beauty collide.
“Be careful what you name an artwork. Rapture means emotional, physical and spiritual transportation, and so far I have done this work in a museum box in Prague, a silent movie theatre in Berlin where Nosferatu premiered, a glacier in Antarctica, a forest in Denmark, a power station in Slovenia, an antique wood carving hall in Wuzhen and a bathtub in Melbourne. You can’t make this shit up! And every single time the audience is transported with me. So much crying, laughing, dancing and singing. The Rapture is a wild, wild beast; get into the tub with her. You won’t regret it,” Finucane said.

The Naomi Milgrom Foundation yesterday released the design for MPavilion 2021, the seventh MPavilion in an ongoing series, by MAP studio (Venice) architects Francesco Magnani & Traudy Pelzel. The geometric, kaleidoscopic design—‘The LightCatcher’— has been envisioned as an urban lighthouse, set to illuminate MPavilion’s diverse program of free cultural events over the summer.
MAP studio—an architecture, urbanism and design practice based in Venice, Italy—is renowned for responding to existing sites in a sensitive and celebratory way. This approach has been especially poignant as MPavilion 2021 returns to its original home in the Queen Victoria Gardens.
A project more than two years in the making, the MPavilion by MAP studio was originally slated for construction in 2020, with progress postponed as the world responded to the COVID-19 crisis. The Naomi Milgrom Foundation is delighted that MAP studio’s MPavilion can now come to fruition.
Commenting on their MPavilion design, Traudy Pelzel said: “The structure we imagine is a shimmering device that qualifies itself as an urban lighthouse that hosts and enlightens the cultural activities planned for the 2021 summer season in Melbourne….A kaleidoscopic structure that reflects and amplifies activities, people and colours. For this reason, we call it ‘The Lightcatcher.’”
The MPavilion design comprises a reticular steel structure in galvanized and painted tubular profiles that support a set of panels in a mirror-finish aluminium coating, reflecting light, colours, activities and people who will use the space. These surfaces will also function as shading elements. The MPavilion 2021 structure appears to float above the ground level on a coloured, organic-shaped surface.
MAP studio’s design has inspired MPavilion’s program themes for its 2021/22 season of free events and will open in the Queen Victoria Gardens, Southbank Arts Precinct, on 11 November 2021 until 20 March 2022.
Taking on a second life, at the end of each season the MPavilion is then gifted by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation to the public. Becoming a legacy of esteemed architect-designed pavilions for the state of Victoria, the series enables design awareness to continue in new communities for years to come.
About MAP studio (Venice)
Located at Palazzo Foscarini in the historic centre of Venice, MAP studio is a young and exciting practice that considers architecture to be a process of constant dialogue, between client and creative, past and present, environment and inhabitant. Founded in 2010, MAP studio (Venice) is renowned for its considerate, deeply site-responsive work—a quality that will be especially significant as MPavilion 2021 takes shape at its original home on Boon Wurrung land in the Queen Victoria Gardens.
About the Naomi Milgrom Foundation
Since 2014, the Naomi Milgrom Foundation has enriched Australian cultural life by engaging new audiences with exceptional art, design and architecture. Led by Naomi Milgrom AC, the Foundation has become a model for public-private collaboration by enabling new projects with a focus on public engagement, industry stimulation, and education.
About MPavilion
MPavilion is Australia’s leading architectural commission and design event, conceived and created by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation. A philanthropic success story that brings government, business and private sectors together to collaborate in significant and lasting ways season after season,]]>

Craft Victoria is pleased to announce the appointment of experienced First Nations artist Jenna Lee to the Board as a Craft Industry Professional non-Executive Director.
Ms Lee is a Larrakia, Wardaman and Karajarri woman who also has Chinese, Japanese, Filipino and Anglo-Australian ancestry.  Her interdisciplinary art practice works across painting, projection, found object and sculpture, with a reoccurring use of paper, the book, language, and text.
Craft Victoria Chair, Katrina Raymond, said Ms Lee brings a unique industry professional maker perspective which will be invaluable in supporting strategic planning and in helping the organisation to assist our Members in building professional and sustainable craft careers.
“Jenna’s career achievements to date have been inspirational.  Her early commissioned design work for major organisations have helped in preserving, exploring and expressing Aboriginal cultural practices.
“In recent years she has been the recipient of numerous important national Awards with work that explores the transformation of the printed word through the ritualistic acts of destruction and reconstruction, seeking to translate the page into a new tangible language.
“We look forward to the role Jenna will play in securing Craft Victoria’s future success,” Ms Raymond said.
Craft Victoria’s core mission is to support and promote professional craft makers in their endeavours to build professional and sustainable careers.  The two Craft Industry Professionals on the Craft Board have a unique role in representing the interests of Craft’s diverse maker membership and ensuring they have a voice.

Future U explores what it means to be human in the 21st century and beyond. Bringing together Australian and international artists, the exhibition examines the increasingly urgent questions of what makes humans unique, and our place in the world during a time of technological acceleration.Future U opens at RMIT Gallery on Friday 23 July until Saturday 23 October 2021.Rapid developments in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and biotechnology are challenging deeply heldbeliefs and notions of what it is to be human.Future U brings together a broad range artists, designers and researchers and includes:  Bettina von Arnim, Holly Block, Karen Casey, Duckworth Hullick Duo, Peter Ellis, Jake Elwes, Alexi Freeman, Libby Heaney, Leah Heiss, Amy Karle, Mario Klingemann, Pia Interlandi, Zhuying Li, Christian Mio Loclair, Maina-Miriam Munsky, Patricia Piccinini,  Stelarc, Deborah Wargon. Curated by Assoc. Prof.Jonathan Duckworth and Dr.Evelyn Tsitas. The exhibition presents creative responses to the potential implications of rapid technological change. It is both speculative and poetic, wonderous and grotesque, with dark humour and provocation in many of the works.The potential of artificial intelligence to replicate and replace human creativity and desire is explored in works including Jake Elwes’ Machine Learning Porn, a video work that records the pornographic fantasies of an AI. Christian Mio Loclair’s Blackberry Winter uses custom machine learning to reproduce human movement digitally.Uncanny Valley’s Beautiful the World won the inaugural AI song contest.The ability of technology to enhance and extend human life is investigated in Amy Karle’s video Amy Karle: Bringing Bones to Life that depicts scientific research and cutting-edge technologies used to transform stem cells into bone. Karen Casey’s video Transplanted interrogates the moral and ethical dilemmas of using medical technology for organ transplantation. Stelarc’s installation StickMan/ mini Stick Maninvolves Stelarc’s body being controlled, augmented and manipulated by a machine.Rapid technological change presents exciting possibilities and potential risks.Alexi Freeman’s BioTextiles uses the power of science to transform micro organisms into sustainable textiles. Bettina von Arnim’s prints from the 1970s examine the dehumanising effects of rapidly advancing technology.‘In curating this exhibition, we did not seek out artists with a shared vision of the future. We found ourselves drawn to diverse artists whose work grappled with key questions about human endeavour, transformation, and relationships. We sought works that opened debate rather than offered answers,’ says co-curators Associate Professor Jonathan Duckworth and Dr. Evelyn Tsitas. The works inFuture U first posit that rapid advances in AI, machines, robotics, and biotechnologies have disrupted the definition of what it means to be human. The exhibition’s second premise explores the impact of technologies on our relations with our environments, and with each other.The third idea Future U considers is the extent that humans can augment and manipulate their bodies with technologies until we are no longer human.

Referencing personal worlds... LEARN MORE Referencing personal worlds created in response to physical surrounding, the exhibition features APA artists Mark Smith, Adrian Lazzaro, Bronwyn Hack, Rosie O’Brien, Chris O’Brien, Fulli Andrinopoulos, Anne Lynch, Dorothy Berry, Matthew Gove and Terry Williams.
The featured artistic practices and works testify to the movement between – and stark transition from – idea and concept to visceral threads and textiles.
Co-curated by Peter Douglas and Jodie Kipps, audiences can expect a tactile multi-dimensional display that represents corporal curiosity, sexual politics, the home, possessions, consumerism and the imaginary world.
Douglas and Kipps consider the mood of the works to represent two distinct personalities: one of a grandma and one of a punk, with hopes that audiences vividly experience a duplexity between the pieces.
“From controversial ‘hot’ topics to the everyday – Material World is a tangible textile conversation that invites others to experience and be a part of the artists very own world. We want to show the marker and the artist, to unravel for the viewer; part of the mystery behind these artist’s work and their distinct processes,” explains co- curators Douglas and Kipps.
Material World is the third exhibition to be presented within Arts Project Australia’s inaugural program at Collingwood Yards, and the only exhibition in 2021 curated by APA’s staff artists, who work closely with each represented artist in the Northcote studio. As part of APA’s commitment to accessibility, the exhibition will also be presented as a virtual show during the same dates.
Mark Smith is a figurative multi-disciplinary artist who has been with Arts Project since 2007. Smith explores how the body relates to human nature and the human condition, using emotion as a starting point.
Adrian Lazzaro is known for his sinister yet humorous imagery. His character-based works primarily feature wrestlers, zombies and lovers that are depicted in a saturated comic strip colour scheme.
Bronwyn Hack is a multi-faceted artist whose works vary from sculpture to painting, printmaking and ceramics and often showcases her interest in animals, particularly dogs, as well as the body and bones.
Rosie O’Brien is an emerging artist whose vibrant use of pattern and placement of soft vessel-like flowers demonstrates her observant style, the soft palette reminiscent of spring.
Chris O’Brien is a multi-disciplinary artist who represents domestic dwellings through his painting, prints, sculptures, videos and artist zines. O’Brien has been an APA artist since 2002.
Fulli Andrinopoulos is an established artist known for her signature floating circular forms. Her works reminisce on the nature’s organic processes such as birds’ nests and spider webs.
Anne Lynch is also an established artist known for her use of pastel colours to exude a sense of nostalgia and memoir. Lynch has sustained her art practice with Arts Projects since 1995.
Dorothy Berry incorporates her interest in animals into her vivid and vibrant images. Symbols and signs in Berry’s works often reflect her personal experience, events, beliefs or opinions.
Matthew Gove is an emerging artist working across a variety of mediums, Gove’s artworks portray a quirky yet humorous matter through playful narratives that often involve animals in a ridiculous ‘humanistic’ way.
Terry Williams is an established artist well known for his soft sculptures. In creating his works, Williams adopts an immersive and idiosyncratic process that manifests his ideas into multi-faceted creations.

Special eBook release
Anniversary edition of Julietta Jameson’s Christmas Island, Indian Ocean 
marks 20 years since the Tampa crisis
How a tiny island and a boat full of refugees changed Australia forever
eBook available July 15, 2021 through select major digital bookstores 
and participating libraries
ISBN: 978-0-6451128-7-0
“At last, a book that tells us all about Christmas Island: a place we have previously heard about as an entry point for people seeking asylum in Australia, but otherwise a blank spot in most Australian minds.”
– Julian Burnside AO QC
Melbourne-based author, Julietta Jameson will release a new, edited version of her moving 2003 book, Christmas Island, Indian Ocean, which will be available for the first time in eBook format from July 15, 2021.
This special anniversary edition marks twenty years since the ‘Tampa crisis’, when a Norwegian freighter rescued hundreds of asylum seekers from a sinking Indonesian fishing boat and attempts to deliver them safely to Christmas Island were thwarted by the Australian government, sparking outrage amongst humanitarians and attracting global media attention for all the wrong reasons.
It is a deeply-affecting account of Jameson’s journey to Australia’s most isolated territory … an extraordinary place, at an extraordinary time.
Originally published in paperback form by ABC Books, the eBook version of Christmas Island, Indian Ocean has been revisited by the author, who during the lengthy editing process, found that the questions and issues raised at that time are every bit as relevant and important today as they were then.
Says Jameson, “This book came about when, one morning in the latter stages of 2001, I heard an ABC Radio interview with Captain Don O’Donnell, the harbour master of Christmas Island. He was describing the moving send-off the islanders had given the Tampa when she finally sailed away, her human cargo having been taken off her deck by the SAS and delivered to the Australian war ship, the Manoora, to eventually be taken to Nauru. As a journalist, an avid hobbyist on matters of the human condition and from the point of view of my own confusion about this and many other things in my life, I decided to go to the island and see what was going on for myself.
“As I set off, Australian public debate on the ‘Tampa crisis’ and the government’s ensuing ‘Pacific Solution’ to ‘stopping the boats’ was passionate, polarised and front-page news, which almost feels quaint in 2021, given how normalised and widely accepted strong-arm tactics – some might say cruelties – towards asylum seekers have become.
“Editing this book for the twentieth anniversary of the Tampa crisis, as I revisited my reflections of and at the time, it seemed like the questions I’d asked twenty years earlier had barely touched the sides of what was to come. Moreover, the answers I thought I had found had been dashed against the jagged rocks of hardened hearts and minds.
“But I believe it is valuable to look at where we came from, in order to understand how we got here. At the very least, the remarkable humanity the Christmas Islanders showed in the latter part of 2001 might serve as a reminder of the humanity in us all.”

Melbourne Chamber Orchestra (MCO) returns to the Bunjil Place Theatre stage, bringing the famed works of Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to life in a thrilling performance set for Wednesday 28th July.
Audiences can enjoy the colourful evocations of nature and Italian life that shines through Vivaldi’s exciting, and innovative work from the Baroque era. Each concerto is accompanied by a sonnet and the hallmarks of each Italian season, from birdsong in spring to summer storms.
The MCO ensemble stars a quartet of soloists led and curated by Artistic Director William Hennessy AM and includes Katherine Lukey, Markiyan Melnychenko and Jennen Ngiau-Keng on violin.

The ensemble – as with all MCO performances – conjure both the intimacy and detail of chamber music and the grandeur and spectacle of orchestral music.
MCO returns to Bunjil Place following stellar performances performing the works of Mozart in 2019. Four Seasons arrives at Bunjil Place as part of a regional tour this winter.
Melbourne Chamber Orchestra is Victoria’s preeminent small orchestra and the leading independent Victorian chamber music organisation. For 30 years, the orchestra has created a distinctive orchestral practice, with a collegial ethos, exploratory programming, and ambitious regional touring.
Bunjil Place is an award-winning cultural precinct in the City of Casey that first opened in 2017. The name and striking architectural design of the facility were inspired by stories of Bunjil (also known as ‘Bunjil) the ‘creator’, from our First Nation’s People. Bringing together an outdoor community plaza, theatre, multipurpose studio, function centre, library, gallery and more – Bunjil Place is a destination for high quality arts and entertainment in Melbourne’s south-east.
