Well, see you later 2020 – you were a bit of a niiiightmare – and hello 2021! I like to think of myself as an eternal optimist – deluded as it often is – I always think, keep on forging ahead – show up, do the work, be enthusiastic and everything will be AOK. The old 2020 had different ideas, though, and it didn’t play out quite how many people had planned. It has been a tough time for many and it was probably a well-overdue revelation to realise how spoilt and pampered we really are when we had to cope with being grounded, on home detention, cook every meal for ourselves, make our own coffee and forgo the beauty maintenance.

SYDNEY CULTURE TRIP Samoan-New Zealander artist Christopher Ulutupu’s cinematic trilogy, The Romantic Picturesque (still, right), draws on exoticised postcard depictions of Pacific Island people and landscapes to explore the performance of identity, cultural stereotyping and the effects of colonisation and diaspora. Distilled from staged encounters between palagi (foreigners) and Pacific Islanders, the work forms part of a joint show with American artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin titled ‘Attention Tourist’. January 16-March 7. cementfondu.org MELBOURNE SEEING DOUBLE Shea Kirk’s ongoing series of stereoscopic portraits (left) are formed through a slow, methodical process that affords agency to the sitter, capturing them with dual large-format cameras that produce subtle variations in perspective.
