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.

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.
