Exhibitions | Contemporary Primeval - Ann Evers & Rick Ball | The Phantom Art Show - Various

Contemporary Primeval - Ann Evers & Rick Ball

Ann Evers’ unusual fibre art holds the element of surprise. Her clever use of materials as a weaver is like a bird’s use of skin, bones and feather for flight.

Evers is no mere basket-maker. Each piece of her work, large or small, is a story of time and of place. She is a weaver of stories and materials, of nature and culture. She weaves the north to the south.

Artist Talk with Peter Kingston

Join artist Peter Kingston, whose work is exhibited at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney; the Museum of Sydney; Biblioteque de la ville, Belgium; Costen Library, Los Angeles and the National Film Library in Tokyo and co-curator of the Phantom Art Show, for a two hour discussion of his work, process and passions.

Dream Merchant: An Impossible Dream

Ravishing pint-sized techno songstress, LaDonna Rama forges a polymorphous path through Sydney's queer club and performance art scene. With her kooky pop posturing and menacing disco grooves, her debut self-titled release fuses a heady combination of dark experimental house, campy techno, new wave and perverted pop. For the Dream Merchant opening at Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery as part of the Broken Heel Festival, LaDonna Rama will perform a live set of her music. the performance will use tracks accompanied by live singing and choreography.

You and Me

Following his Thursday night performance for the Broken Heel Festival join Liam Benson for "You and Me", a participatory performance artwork that acknowledges Australia's Aboriginal history and present through sequin embroidery. Audience members are invited to work collaboratively with Liam, where participants can learn how to sew sequins whilst acknowledging country through a map depicting the diverse language groups of First Nation Australians.
