The program considers the philosophy and politics of land ownership and the balance between exploitation, cultivation and sustainability. The program is presented across four interweaving strands – Connection, Transition, Consequence and Revelation. It features powerful stories of the human experience of landscape and reveals some of the distinct ways in which nature has been characterised in art and cinema. // The title of the project is taken from the lyrics to a song by musicians ...

John Olsen – The You Beaut Country Exhibition

John Olsen: The You Beaut Country offers an unparalleled opportunity to examine Olsen’s consummate place in Australian art history. His You beaut country series, which followed his return to Australia in 1960 after three years travelling in Europe, began what would be a lifelong interest in representing the landscape and Australian identity. These works are presented alongside his more recent paintings, prints and watercolours, including those inspired by the filling of Lake Eyre. The ...

Australiens Movie Review

So it falls upon Andi, her absent band mate (director, Jo Bauer), their bouncer (Lawrence Silver), their bored videographer (Tamara McLaughlin) and her geekish brother (Doug Hatch) to save the world… sorry… Australia (except Tasmania) from the alien onslaught. Low budget hijinks ensue. Tim Burton's Mars Attacks did the cheap sci-fi spoof for $80M back in 1996. As Dolly Parton once said, "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap." It's a shame Brisbane director/writer, Joe Bauer, ...

Chet Faker 2015 East Coast Tour

It will be a final celebration of his multi-platinum, chart-topping album Built on Glass. Chet completely sold out his entire 13-date tour earlier this year including a remarkable two Hordern Pavilions and five Palais Theatres.

Ginger Meggs: Australia’s Favourite Boy Exhibition

Ginger Meggs first appeared in the Us fellers comic strip in Sydney’s Sunday Sun newspaper in 1921, and he and his gang – including girlfriend, Minnie Peters, and arch nemesis, Tiger Kelly – have kept us company ever since. This mischievous Australian icon was created by James ‘Jimmy’ Bancks. With his instantly recognisable red hair, shorts and shoes, his larrikin charms and endless ability to get himself into and out of trouble, ‘Ginge’, as he was affectionately known, ...

Ali Barter 2015 Australian Tour

A classically trained choirgirl who ran away to be an intermittent world traveller and self-confessed ‘rat bag’, it was the notoriously tortured Cat Power who re-ignited Ali’s fire for music and performance. She came back to Melbourne with life lived and stories to tell. Since her return to reality, the former triple j unearthed winner has been crafting her own smoky-smooth alternative rock that tests musical combinations, whilst reflecting and embracing the power chords and danceha...
