art almanac

We acknowledge and pay our respect to the many Aboriginal nations across this land, traditional custodians, Elders past and present; in particular the Guringai people of the Eora Nation where Art Almanac has been produced. Deep listening is key to the creation, staging and experience of works in the ‘Tarnanthi Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art’, which comprises a fair, a major show at the Art Gallery of South Australia and an array of art events in broader Adelaide, all of which reflect ‘tarnanthi’ – to come forth or come to light. Elsewhere in Australia, three solo-shows encourage us to look and listen closer. Leila Jeffreys asks us to bond with birds, a relationship to the self is mediated in Brad Rusbridge’s paintings and John Young Zerunge shifts…

the big anxiety festival

How do we cultivate empathy in place of stigma, fear and discrimination? Asks ‘The Big Anxiety Festival’ – the world’s largest mental health and arts event. On during Mental Health Month (October) through to 9 November, with the aim of encouraging Australians with mental health problems not seeking help – to reach out, the festival drives conversation towards a better understanding of these issues and the prevention of suicide by tapping community consciousness through creativity within the arts. Professor Jill Bennett, Artistic Director of the Festival says the festival ‘explores various ways for us to connect, hear and be heard; and to make change by breaking down barriers people experience and through building better futures.’ ‘The Big Anxiety Festival’ culminates in a diverse program of sound installation, visual art, discussion, film, radio podcasts,…

melbourne international arts festival

Melbourne International Arts Festival’s visual art events include the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art presenting a sonic installation by Haroon Mirza who responds to the ‘echo chamber’ the architecture their unique space creates. Mariana Castillo Deball exhibits for the first time in Australia with Monash University Museum of Art and across two spaces, Gertrude Contemporary and Margaret Lawrence Gallery, we find ‘Hope Dies Last’ which has us sit in the discomfort inevitable when we let go of optimism. Denton Corker Marshall architects examine the histories of four galleries — Melbourne’s United Artists, City Gallery, and the Sydney and Melbourne iterations of Anna Schwartz Gallery, where the show is on view. At Tolarno, teamLab’s interest in technology and futurism reflect on the splendor of the natural world. festival.melbourne…

finkelstein gallery

Lisa Fehily has recently launched Finkelstein Gallery, representing established and emerging women artists. Having opened in September with a group show, in October a solo-exhibition ‘Primary Instincts’ by Coady will be on view. Noting a global and national shift toward recognising the critical contribution women make to the arts, from the National Museum for Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C., inviting their audience to support their campaign ‘Name Five Women Artists’ – since 2016, to the National Gallery of Australia’s new #KnowMyName project Fehily felt compelled to act, ‘Time is right to open this gallery’ she said. ‘After working with artists for many years, I have been witness to female artists being overlooked, not being put forward for important exhibitions, institutions predominantly considering male artists for collections and many other such…

liveworks festival

Performance Space has selected outstanding experimental work from across the Asia-Pacific to be shared at Sydney’s Carriageworks this month. Kicking off on 17 October, audiences are invited to enjoy performances, installations, parties, workshops and conversations over 11 days. Two themes co-exist, ‘Feminist Sound’ and ‘Culture Disruptors’. Amongst the huge list of experiences we will name a few; Betty Grumble’s ‘The Unshame Machine’ is a bodily becoming performance, ‘A continuous self-vibrating region of intensities’ by Gail Priest and Thomas Burless creates a conduit for human voices to manifest in an enchanting display of visual patterns and effects and Vicki Van Hout negotiates expression with art, dance and comedy revealing the parts of Indigenous art-making that usually remain behind the scenes. performancespace.com.au…
