Beth Orton Australian Tour
Last in Australia in 2013 for the Heavenly Sounds tour, Orton is well known for her mesmerising on-stage presence and powerfully emotive vocals. Consequence Of Sound wrote of Orton’s “… intensely heartfelt vocals and ever assured guitar…” at a recent London show, continuing that “Orton’s vocal at times recalled the melisma of Joni Mitchell and the purity of Sandy Denny”.
Orton will perform with a full band for the first time in Australia in many years playing songs spanning ...

Frank Stella – The Kenneth Tyler Print Collection Exhibition at NGA
Stella was born in 1936 in Malden, outer suburban Boston. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in history from Princeton University in New Jersey in 1958, then moved to New York. ‘I never really wanted to become an artist. But, I did want to make things’, he confessed in a conversation with the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Adam D Weinberg on 7 March 2014, and an interest in contemporary events followed. Like many young artists in immediate postwar America, he was initially smitten ...

Fiona Hall – Wrong Way Time Exhibition at NGA
In common with many of us, Hall sees these as failed states, as ‘a minefield of madness, badness and sadness’ stretching beyond the foreseeable future. Hall’s lifelong passion for the natural environment can be felt intensely in works that respond to our persistent role in its demise, or to the perilous state of various species.
Hall’s seemingly random conjunction of things in a wunderkammer-like installation appeals to our human impulse to make connections, or perhaps a propen...
