OPENINGS AND THE ARTS IN SYDNEY 11/04/2011 – 17/4/2011

Well with a new relocation of studio and office.. It has been an adventure..
With currently no internet access, we have to go to the local library, where the internet half way through
blogging crashes.. But a kind lady told me to head to the local pub, and sink a schooner and use the free
wifi… Well it helped. Thanks for the advise.

Sorry for confusion of wrong dates last week.. Almost back to normal now..

Check out a friend of ours Julian Meagher – on Art Nation tonight.

This week also sees the yearly chase for the Archibald prize..

Jenny Sages ‘my jack’ portrait of her late husband.

who will win this year?

Check out our friends at Strobed – see their website – Keep up the great work guys.

So this is this week shows below and the end of my our blogging adventure, so to beer or not to beer(again) is the question.. Have a great week!

INDEX. is calling for proposals for “What Things Look Like”, a group exhibition of photomedia to be mounted as a part of the Headon Photo Festival. This exhibition asks contemporary photomedia artists to respond to Gary Winnogrand’s famous claim that he photographed in order to see what things looked like photographed. Implicit in this claim is an understanding that by photographing a thing, you change it, you alter its percep…tible being. “What Things Look Like” celebrates our ability to change the reality we record,
to render it more human even as we render it less real.

Artists will be informed of our selection by Mon April 18th
Selected work must be delivered by Mon May 2nd
