Closing Night Gala – Safety Not Guaranteed

“WANTED: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You’ll get paid after we get back.
Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before.”
This unusual classified ad inspires three cynical Seattle magazine employees to look for the story behind it.
They set out for the scenic seaside community of Ocean View and embark on a comical adventure. Darius
(Aubrey Plaza, of hit television comedy Parks and Recreation) is a disillusioned college graduate who interns at the magazine.
She’s joined by a fellow intern, the very serious Arnau (Karan Soni), and their boozy boss, Jeff (Jake Johnson),
and the three go about some clumsy investigative journalism. Jeff is apparently only interested in the story
so he can hook up with an old flame who lives in Ocean View, so Darius and Arnau are left largely to their own devices.
They find an eccentric named Kenneth (Mark Duplass, mumblecore pioneer and co-director of SFF film Jeff, Who Lives at Home),
a supermarket clerk who believes he’s solved the riddle of time travel and intends to depart again soon.
Safety Not Guaranteed is a surprising and very funny sci-fi comedy with heart.

Come celebrate the end of the 59th Sydney Film Festival in style as the Closing Night Gala sends
off another great season. a chance to experience the red-carpet glamour of one of Australia’s premiere film events in one of its most beautiful venues.

Visual Art
Factory 49 Paris

Factory 49 wants to open a Showroom in Paris to be run in a similar fashion to our
Sydney Showroom. We have found a space to buy and need the funds to do that.
Factory 49 is a registered “not-for-profit” organisation which has been running very
successfully for 6 years in Sydney. It is run by a committee of mature artists.
Paris is chosen as a venue because Factory 49 has already built up a network due to
the Director visiting 2 months each year for the past 6 years. Paris is also a perfect
city for a stepping stone to other European countries. This will enable Australian
artists to have a much larger profile and help them professionally.

FACTORY 49 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:

1. establish and promote artistic activities related to the guiding principles of the
international art movement known as either non-objective art, geometric art, abstract art or non realistic art.
2. provide a Showroom and outdoor Walls for the mounting of works and installations that
display historical and contemporary artworks within the traditions of abstraction.
3. provide a platform for visiting artists of national and international stature with
associated free residencies and lectures, thus becoming part of a large network and exchange.
4. bring emerging artists into a close relationship with other mature or visiting artists,
writers and curators from around NSW, interstate and overseas, &  promote them locally & internationally.
6. co-ordinate an educational program for Primary children as well as a local community program
to introduce contemporary art. Outreach to University students seeking to affiliate or
broaden their understanding of such regional activities.
7. gain a wider critical acceptance of abstract art while further developing artists profiles.
8. establish an archive that documents images, videos, catalogues, texts, articles and books.
9. publish a Year Book every 12 months as well as all of the normal material for shows.
10.seek grants from NSW Ministry of the Arts, Marrickville Council and private sponsors.

HELP NEEDED!!
Help in minding the gallery on an ongoing basis on either Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 1-6pm.
The gallery office space is now equipped with comfortable seating and as always a nice aircon/heater to keep you toasty. There is also a Dodo internet thingy to keep net junkies satisfied. Ideal for those studying and need a remote industrial getaway.
If you know anyone who could help out, that’d be real sweet. Doesn’t have to be a consistent thing, just dependable.

Contact the gallery if you think you can help.

Call out for artists to do art in squatted spaces

Fire Gallery will start it’s string of art exhibitions in squatted art spaces. The first of many will be in Newtown. Our crew is looking for all sorts of artists to work with odd spaces doing graffiti, stencils, murals, performances or art installations…or anything creative you may want to do.

The reason behind this project is to make art spaces available to artists. Such spaces would otherwise remain unused and abandoned. Anyone participating in this project needs to understand the legal implications attached to trespassing if caught by police. However, most times police will only ask you to move on and only the art organisers will be left to deal with the consequences. Living in fear is for losers so get onboard and do some cool art projects with Little Fish. Everyone is welcome to participate and all ideas and proposals will be considered.

This project will also be highlighting exploitation against artists by the art world where artists need to hire a space and also pay commissions on sales of artworks.

For more info please email or private message us
